A South Western Ambulance Trust spokesperson told Spire FM News they were called at 6.20pm.

One patient has been taken to Salisbury District Hospital by land ambulance.

They also tell us the response from the emergency services has been 'precautionary'.

Wiltshire Police have told us they are 'certain there's no risk to the public' following the drug-related incident.


There were reports of intermittent power cuts in the South Wiltshire area around the same time as this incident.

It's now thought the two were not connected, with SSE posting on their Twitter account that the issues they had were centred around Pewsey, affecting a wider area.
