A hospital which was accused of failing to meet its ambulance turnaround targets now says it has the lowest waiting times in the South West.

In February Yeovil District Hospital was fined £24,000 by South Western Ambulance Service after crews were left with patients outside the hospital for over 30 minutes on more than 50 occasions.

The hospital now says patients are seen within around 10 minutes of arriving by ambulance.
