A WOMAN has died after an incident near a school.

Emergency services were called to a 'medical emergency' in Wickford this morning.

An air ambulance landed in the grounds of Grange Primary School, on Elder Avenue, at around 11.50pm.

A school spokesperson said paramedics were responding to an 'off-site' incident which is unrelated to the school.

A spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service said: "An ambulance, two rapid response vehicles, an ambulance officer, a community first responder and Essex and Herts Air Ambulance Service were called to a medical emergency at Laburnum Avenue Wickford shortly after 11.20 this morning.

"Sadly, despite the best efforts of all involved, a woman died on the scene."

The service was unable to provide more information.

Essex Police said it's not being treated as suspicious
