A person died after suffering a cardiac arrest in a north Norfolk village, despite the best efforts of air and land ambulance crews.

A spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Trust said a road ambulance, two rapid response vehicles and an ambulance helicopter all rushed to the scene at Blacksmiths Lane in Happisburgh, just after 9am on Sunday, February 17.

An ambulance trust spokesman said: “We were called at 9.02am yesterday with reports of a cardiac arrest in Blacksmiths Lane, Happisburgh.

“We sent one ambulance, two rapid response vehicles and the East Anglian Air Ambulance.

“Sadly the patient died at the scene.”

Paul Hovell, who took a photograph of the ambulance landing at about 10am, said: “The crew went into the nearby Wenn Evans community centre.”
