A crew from Magpas Air Ambulance landed in a field in Huntingdon yesterday (July 6), after a teenager fell from a horse.

The team arrived at 3.13pm and found the woman had sustained a leg injury.

After putting measures in place to protect her leg, she was sedated and flown to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge, where she was stable upon arrival.

Paramedics from the East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust were also in attendance, as well as medics Nathan Howes and Ashley Richardson from Magpas.

The air ambulance was flown by chief pilot, Richard Eastwood, alongside crew member Steve Hunwicks.
