A man's arm has been saved by surgeons after it was severed in an accident with a chainsaw.
The 38-year-old man is in a stable condition after undergoing surgery at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.
He was airlifted to hospital on Friday following the accident which happened as he was trimming a hedgerow in Knodishall, near Leiston, Suffolk.
Doctors were flown to the scene in Saxmundham Road to give life-saving first-aid to the man who had lacerated an artery in his left arm after losing grip of the chainsaw.
Although it was thought at first that his condition was "limb-threaten-ing", it has been revealed that there has been no amputation.
A hospital spokesman said the patient, who is from Knodishall, is now in a "comfortable position" after having surgery to repair nerve and tendon damage to his arm.
