GRAHAM TAYLOR, the former England manager, was rushed to hospital last night after suffering from severe breathing problems.

Taylor, now the Watford manager, has an abscess in his throat which is restricting his breathing. He was taken by ambulance to the specialist throat unit at Northwick Park Hospital in Harrow. He went to the Watford General Hospital after feeling unwell. Shortly afterwards, an ambulance was called to the hospital's accident and emergency entrance and he was transferred.

One medic explained: "Taylor has a severe abscess in his throat which is making his breathing very difficult. He was in quite a bad way and it was decided he should be taken to a specialist hospital."

A spokesman for Northwick Park Hospital said Taylor would have a full investigation today. "Taylor was transferred to the ear, nose and throat specialist department at Northwick. At the moment they do not know how serious it is. But he is not in any danger or anything," he said.
