A man in his 50s was airlifted to hospital after suffering a cardiac arrest in Lowestoft.

Emergency services were called just before 2pm on Thursday (June 16) to help the man – close to the A1144 on Normanston Drive.

An ambulance crew, two rapid response vehicles, an ambulance officer and the East Anglian Air Ambulance were all called to assist.

A spokesman said: 'Fortunately crews were able to restart the man's heart before he was then air lifted to Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital in a serious condition.'

The air ambulance landed in a nearby park – understood to be Normanston Park – before medics provided further care.
