Ambulance station swine flu alert

Ambulance crews were warned to stay away from one of their Dundee stations after a possible swine flu case was transported to hospital.

Access to the West School Road depot was restricted for a couple of hours on Sunday night after the patient was taken to Ninewells.

A Scottish Ambulance Service spokesman said it was a "precautionary measure."

He added that there had been no impact on the service's ability to respond to calls during the action.

He explained that ambulance crews spend most of their time working away from base, but if staff had needed to return to the West School Road station they were directed to another depot.
