Fire fighters were called to the renal unit (pictured) at Welshpool Hospital this morning to release a patient stuck in a lift.

MyWelshpool readers contacted us to say that crews were on the scene at about 7.30am and thankfully it was not a fire, but to assist the stricken patient.

A spokesperson for Powys Teaching Health Board told us: “We can confirm that a patient was stuck in the lift at Welshpool Hospital.

“The patient was released by staff supported by the Fire Service and went on to have her treatment as planned.

“We apologise to the patient for the inconvenience caused by the experience and the lift company have been called to identify the issue. The lift is regularly serviced and maintained.

“We are grateful to the Fire Service for their support.”
