Two boys who were injured in a rugby match were airlifted to hospital yesterday (Sunday).

The East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) was called twice to Holt Rugby Club on Bridge Road, High Kelling, first after 1.15pm and then at 2.25pm.

Both were around 11 years old and were airlifted to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital but were conscious and had not received 'life-threatening injuries', according to an East of England Ambulance Service spokesman.

He said: 'The first boy had suffered an impact to how lower back and a Community First Responder was on the scene within two minutes then the air ambulance arrived. The second boy had a stiff/swollen neck.'

A Community First Responder was also called to the second incident but paramedics and a land ambulance were not called, according to the ambulance service spokesman.
