Fire service called to Derriford Hospital

The fire service has been called to an incident at Derriford Hospital this afternoon. Pictures show two fire trucks parked outside the entrance to the hospital, though there doesn’t appear to be any smoke. Alfie Smyth is at the hospital and says the fire engines, one an aerial platform truck, are currently stationed outside the entrance.

Mr Smyth said: “There are two fire engines at Derriford Hospital main entrance. There is no smoke. “Just went into the hospital and all seems OK.

There were two or three firemen talking to a man.” Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service has been approached for more information. This is the third time in five months Plymouth Live has reported on the fire service being called to the hospital.

Last month the hospital experienced a “minor fault within a piece of mechanical ventilation equipment” which resulted in the alarm sounding.

In July there was a “small fire” which was isolated quickly by the fire service.
