Update on Incident in Formby Village:

A man has been taken to hospital in a serious condition after suffering a suspected medical episode at the wheel in Formby this afternoon (Sunday 23 June).

Emergency services were called to Chapel Lane just before 5.05pm to a report of a collision involving a white Honda car.

It was reported the driver, a man in his 40s, had a medical episode and the car was driven across the roundabout before colliding with railings.

He has been taken to hospital where his condition is described as serious.

The front seat passenger, a woman in her 30s, sustained a leg injury and has been taken to hospital for treatment. Her condition is stable.

No other vehicles were involved.

A road closure is in place on Chapel Lane at the roundabout and motorists are advised to seek alternative routes.

Formby Village is the scene of a major emergency response this afternoon, Sunday 23rd June, as police and emergency services descended upon the area.

All roads leading into the village, including Sumner Road car park, Three Tuns Lane, School Lane, and the main village thoroughfare, have been completely blocked off by police vehicles.

In a dramatic development, the air ambulance helicopter was seen landing in the Waitrose car park, indicating the gravity of the situation.

Details of the incident remain unclear at this time. However, eyewitnesses have reported seeing a significant number of emergency responders on the scene. One bystander suggested that a child may have been run over, though this has not yet been confirmed by authorities.

The extensive police presence and road closures suggest that the situation is extremely serious.
