A man was taken to hospital after having a heart attack at Romford train station.

Police and ambulance services were called to the station at around 8am this morning (Tuesday, May 1).

A spokeswoman from the British Transport Police control room told the Recorder that the man was taken to a London hospital in an ambulance after suffering a cardiac arrest on the platform at Romford.

She said that he was still alive when he left the station.

Trains are still operating as usual and Transport for London (TFL) tweeted a customer and said: “Emergency services were called this morning to Romford station meaning the side entrance was closed however the station is still open from the front and operating a full service.”

A spokeswoman from the London Ambulance service told the Recorder: “We were called at 5.57 this morning to South Street, Romford, to reports of a person taken ill.

“We sent an incident response officer, an advanced paramedic, a single responder in a car and an ambulance crew.

“We treated a man at the scene and took him as a priority to hospital.”
