PARAMEDICS were called after a councillor collapsed at the end of a meeting.

Cllr Dave Smith collapsed and fell down a flight of stairs at Gosport Town Hall shortly after last night’s full council meeting.

He was taken by ambulance to Queen Alexandra Hospital in Cosham at around 7.20pm.

South Central Ambulance Service spokesman James Keating-Wilkes said: ‘We got a call to a councillor who had collapsed and fallen down stairs.

‘We sent one ambulance which was on the scene in six minutes and we then conveyed him to Queen Alexandra hospital.’
