Patients told to avoid A&E as Luton & Dunstable Hospital floods
People are told to avoid the accident and emergency department at Luton and Dunstable University Hospital after flooding in the building.
A tweet from the hospital read: “Due to a localised flooding issue in the L&D's Emergency Department, please contact NHS 111 if you need urgent help.
“Please only attend the Emergency Department for life threatening illnesses or injuries.”
This comes as a flood warning was issued for properties near to the River Lea in Luton. The government website said: “A flood warning means flooding to some property is expected.”
