The Premier League match between Newcastle United and Tottenham at St James’ Park had to be paused as a result of a medical emergency in the stands.

The first half had be brought to an abrupt halt ahead of seven scheduled minutes of stoppage time after an emergency was flagged in the crowd. The stadium announcer later said the players would return to finish the half.

Paramedics from both sides rushed to attend to someone in the crowd as the players were taken off the pitch and into the dressing rooms.

The incident occurred with four minutes plus stoppage time still to be played, but the first half was eventually allowed to resume.

A statement on the official Newcastle United Twitter feed read: “The supporter who was in need of urgent medical assistance has been stabilised and is on their way to hospital. Our thoughts are with them.”
