Residents watched as officers entered a flat on the street. The dog unit van was parked at the back of the building.

It is believed it may have been a hoax call.

A spokesperson for EMAS said: “We received a call at 8:18am to an incident in Lincoln. We sent a paramedic in a fast response vehicle and a double crewed ambulance. We worked closely on scene with Lincolnshire Police, no patients were found.”
