British songwriter Hazel O'Connor has been taken to hospital following "bleeding on the brain".

The singer seemingly passed out at her home in France, before being transferred to "a major hospital" where her condition is being monitored.

In a note on Hazel O'Connor's Tumblr, her brother Neil reported an “important announcement” about the singer.

“She was taken to her local hospital, where it was determined that she’d had a bleeding on the brain and that she should be transferred to a major hospital where her condition could more effectively monitored,” the post read. “On Sunday things were touch and go, and the next 24 hours would determine how her recovery may go.”

The post explains that Hazel O'Connor was put into an induced coma for around a day, but has “been showing a lot of progress” after being taken out of it.

Hazel O'Connor's recovery is going to take a while, he added, but his sister is “receiving the best of care.”
