POLICE and ambulances have been called to a cinema. 

Emergency services rushed to the Odeon cinema in West Street, Brighton, at about 6.15pm. 

A spokeswoman for the South East Coast Ambulance service said: "We were called to reports of a patient in a serious condition inside the cinema. 

The Argus:

"We have a number of vehicles treating the patient."

Sussex Police said they were called to assist with the medical incident.

A passerby said: "I have no idea what is going on. We just saw an ambulance whizz past us and they have been there ever since."

The Argus:

Another witness said: "There are a lot of emergency services cars parked outside the cinema. Four police, four ambulance cars and an ambulance still has its blue lights on. You would think for them to respond in such numbers it would be something serious."

A bystander said: "We were going to the Odeon cinema but the screen was closed and the lady on the till said it was something major.

The Argus:

"We had just gone to park in Churchill Square when six police cars and two ambulances pulled up at the side of the Odeon and they ran in."
