One of the West Country's biggest hospitals has been placed on black alert, after a dramatic rise in the emergency admissions.
On Thursday, 125 ambulances brought patients to the Royal Cornwall Hospital - 30 more than normal.
Patients are being told not to come to casualty unless it is a genuine emergency.
Royal Cornwall Hospital has today declared a black bed state with significant demand for our services. Patient safety is our top priority both in our emergency department and supporting patients to get home or to onward care.
The local community can help by using alternative services wherever possible such as minor injury units, urgent care centres, GPs and pharmacies to keep the emergency department for emergencies and supporting relatives and friends to come home from hospital.
