Emergency services were called to a former hotel in Dereham town centre after reports of a 'medical emergency'.
Officers from Norfolk police and a crew from the East of England Ambulance Service Trust were called to the building in the Market Place - which has previously been the NR19 and Hill House hotel - at 8.21am on Tuesday, March 10.
Many people travelling through the town at one of the busiest times of the day witnessed the officers and paramedics helping a patient in the grounds.
A spokesperson for the Trust said: 'We were called at 8.21am with reports of a person who was unwell in Market Place, Dereham.
