• Two ambulances attend Vicarage Road Stadium to treat woman for suspected asthma • Jennifer Byrd ran onto the pitch at half-time and was taken away with paramedics
Watford v Chelsea paused as paramedics treated a woman who collapsed at half-time on Tuesday.
The 41-year-old Jennifer Byrd was taken to a local hospital on Tuesday night and stretchered off the pitch after becoming distressed and being carried from the away fans area at Vicarage Road. Her mobile phone video showed her running onto the pitch in front of the home supporters with two club stewards wrestling her to the ground.
