When approached for comment, the officers explained that they could not comment at this time.

A spokesperson for Weymouth Town Council said: "The Pier Bandstand Toilets will be closed until further notice. Sorry for any inconvenience caused."

A passer-by who did not want to be named said: "It is really quite shocking to see all of the police cars here.

"I do hope that whoever is involved is okay. "It's a bit worrying that they have had to close the toilets off completely - it must be serious."

Another nearby walker who did not want to be named said: "I saw two ambulances and two police cars. It doesn't shock me, but it definitely isn't a nice thing to see."

A spokesperson for the South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SWASFT) said: "We were called at 12.10pm on Monday, March 25 to an incident in Weymouth.  We sent two double-crewed land ambulances to the scene.”

Dorset Police have been contacted for further information.
