A MAN has been taken to hospital after crashing his van into a post in Shoebury.

It is thought the driver of the vehicle suffered a medical emergency at the wheel before losing control outside Bridge Garage, at Ness Road, Shoebury around 5pm today.

An air ambulance landed in Shoebury Park but thankfully it wasn't needed after paramedics in an ambulance van at the scene performed CPR.

Police were also present.

The ambulance service has been contacted for comment.
