According to the police, many incidents are happening in different places. The first took place at the hospital site, while two others were in the city center. “These areas have been closed and the public has been urged to avoid them for the moment,” local officials said on Twitter without first clarifying on the nature of these interventions.
Crawford McGuffie, director of the respective hospital’s medical department, said: “There has been an incident in the area of Crosshouse University Hospital. As a result, the hospital was closed and ambulances were sent to other hospitals. We support the Scottish Police in their investigations and ensure the safety of staff, patients and visitors. “
According to Sky News, a hospital employee was stabbed. It was one of three “serious incidents” that police have linked.
“The investigation into these incidents is in a preliminary stage and these areas have been closed for the time being. There is no need to worry more broadly. Scottish police have confirmed that the incidents are not believed to be terrorism related.
