A woman in her 70s was taken to hospital following a serious fall.

The East of England Ambulance Service and the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) were called out at about 6.45pm last Friday, August 30 after the woman had suffered a fall in Lowestoft.

The Anglia Two helicopter was landed close to the scene as they assisted the EEAST team.

A spokesman for the EAAA said: "Anglia Two was tasked to Lowestoft to assist EEAST with a woman in her seventies who had suffered a fall.

"Pilots John Bushell and Paul Smith landed the helicopter in a nearby school field.

"Doctor Sophia DeMaria and critical care paramedic Page Chamberlain assisted EEAST at the scene by giving the patient a full assessment and helping to splint an injury.

"The patient was then taken by road ambulance to James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston for further treatment."
