The East Anglian Air Ambulance was called into action today after a man in his 80s suffered a cardiac arrest.

The Anglia Two helicopter landed in a field at Shropham, near Attleborough, just after midday.

Captain Graham Wayman flew the helicopter to the scene.

Staff from the East of England Ambulance Service were already trying to help the man and Dr Monojit Choudhury and critical care paramedic Rob Elias worked alongside them to stabilise the patient.

They then airlifted him to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital where his condition is described as life-threatening.
