A young child has been airlifted after an incident outside a hospital in Pembrokeshire.

Officers were called to reports of a car colliding with pedestrians outside Withybush Hospital in Haverfordwest at about 11.50am on Wednesday.

A pedestrian, the driver of the car and a passenger have all been taken to hospital for treatment.

Police said the child was airlifted to Cardiff for treatment.

Dyfed-Powys Police said they would have a continued presence outside the hospital for a “number of hours” as the investigation continues into the circumstances surrounding the incident.

Withybush Hospital’s director, Andrew Burns, said services continued to “operate as normal”.

“If you are attending for an outpatient appointment, you may experience some delay in parking while investigations are under way but this is expected to return to normal in due course,” he added.
