Delays after passenger suffers 'suspected seizure' on the Metro
There were delays to Metro services on the Sunderland line after a medical emergency in South Tyneside.
An ambulance had to be called to assist a passenger, who was suspected to have suffered a seizure, at 12.40pm on Wednesday, July 10.
The service tweeted there were delays between Fellgate and South Hylton, due to an ambulance attending Fellgate for a man, who was unwell.
It has since confirmed on Twitter that trains are now running between the two stations - but with delays to service.
