A MAN, suspected of overdosing on drugs, collapsed in the middle of Hereford on Tuesday.

Ambulance staff worked on the 41-year-old, who was taken to Hereford County Hospital and remains in a serious condition.

Police were called to East Street public toilets – which were only reopened two weeks ago – to assist at 1.45pm, blocking off the road and later closing the toilets.

A 36-year-old man from Hereford was arrested on suspicion of supplying heroin, and released on bail pending further inquiries.
