A MEMBER of staff at Huntingdonshrie Regional College had to be taken to hospital after suffering a form of seizure yesterday.

The man in his 40s was described as being in an "acute state of confusion" by medical staff who attended the scene at 9am. He was said to be agitated and moving erratically.

The casualty was anaesthetised by Magpas medics and taken by land ambulance to Addenbrooke's Hospital, where his condition was described as serious but stable. Police were also called to the scene.

A college spokesman told the Hunts Post: "A member of staff appeared to have some kind of seizure at around 8.30am. The area was isolated by staff members. The emergency services were called and responded quickly, and dealt appropriately with the situation.

"He was taken to hospital where he is still receiving treatment."

Magpas volunteer paramedic Simon Standen said: "This was a challenging job. We'd like to thank all the staff at the college and the ambulance crew for their assistance."
