Julie Taylor said: “I saw the air ambulance land just at the back of the house. There were two ambulances in the road. The air ambulance just landed and then took off after a bit.”
Chris Osborne said: “The air ambulance landed on Cocklemoor and they had a lot of gear. The traffic was all jammed up.”
A Bow Street business owner added: “No one seems to know anything. I believe it came to Bow Street but I was coming from Curry Rivel and was caught up in all the traffic.”
