A teenage boy has died in a serious medical incident in Swindon this evening.
Emergency services flooded a usually quiet Old Town road shortly before 7pm after being called to reports of a male unresponsive.
Union Street, near BBC Wiltshire, was closed in both directions as police, fire and ambulance all attended the scene.
A casualty was seen to be resuscitated in the road, with witnesses reporting a large number of medics gathered around him.
Despite their best efforts, he was pronounced dead at the scene.
A spokesperson for Wiltshire Police said: “At 6.45pm today (20/03) we responded to reports of a non-suspicious sudden death of a teenage boy at an address in Union Street, Old Town, Swindon.
“Our thoughts are with the boy’s family at this very sad time.
“A file will now be prepared for HM Coroner.”
