A patient in a serious condition was rushed to hospital this morning following 999 calls over fears for a person's welfare near High Wycombe. 

An air ambulance landed on the playing fields of Loudwater Combined School in Kingsmead Road at about 11.15am. 

The emergency services have since confirmed that they raced to a residential property in Loudwater following a "fear for welfare" call.

After the air ambulance landed, paramedics were seen getting in a police car and driving off at speed in the direction of Wycombe Marsh.

South Central Ambulance Service said they were called to an address at 11.09am and a person was found in a serious condition. 

They were treated at the scene before being taken to John Radcliffe Hospital by land ambulance. 

Reporter Jasmine Rapson has been speaking to people at the scene.

The air ambulance left the scene at about 12.20pm without the on-board paramedics, who were understood to still be dealing with the incident.

The school is currently closed for the summer holidays and earlier this morning caretaker Derek Clarke confirmed that the incident has "nothing to do with the school" when speaking to reporters.

More as we get it.
