Emergency services were called to a house on Francis Street at 8.30pm.

A YOUNG MAN is in a serious condition after being found unresponsive at a house in Waterford.

Emergency services were called to the home on Francis Street where they treated the man before he was removed to Waterford Regional Hospital.

The man, who is understood to be from Eastern Europe and in his late 20s, had earlier been with friends in the house.

The emergency services were called after 8.30pm.
