A MAN has been seriously injured after being trampled on by a herd of cows.

Ambulance crews were called to a field in Priory Hill, St Neots at 7.30pm yesterday (Monday).

Police said that the farmer had been informed and that no offence had taken place.

A similar incident occurred in 2010 on St Neots Common, when a 58-year-old man suffered a punctured lung after being trampled.

East of England Ambulance Service spokesman Gary Sanderson said: “The man, who we believe to be in his 60s, received significant injuries.
