A man died inside a fast-food restaurant in Ipswich town centre at the weekend.

Ambulance crews were called at 2.12pm on Saturday to McDonald’s in Tavern Street to reports of a man who was not breathing.

Paramedics from the East of England Ambulance Service attended and treated the man who was in cardiac arrest.

Despite their best efforts, the man died at the scene.

An ambulance service spokesman said the patient was believed to be aged in his 30s.

A spokesman for Suffolk Constabulary said the death was not being treated as suspicious, and the man’s next of kin had been informed.

Customers were asked to leave the building and the windows of the restaurant were covered with cardboard while the incident took place.

A spokesman for McDonald’s said: “We can confirm that emergency services were contacted on Saturday, November 5 to assist a gentlemen who was found to be unconscious at our Tavern Street restaurant.

“The restaurant was closed whilst paramedics attempted to resuscitate the individual.

“Our staff acted professionally throughout and we are offering our full support to those members who were on site at the time.”
