Air ambulance called to Thetford estate after diabetic woman is taken ill
An air ambulance was called to an estate in Thetford this morning after a woman suffered a suspected diabetes related attack.
Paramedics from the East of England Ambulance Service and the East Anglian Air Ambulance were called to Coventry Way, on the Abbey Estate in Thetford, at 9.10am.
A spokesperson for the ambulance service said a rapid response vehicle and two ambulance crews attended alongside the air ambulance and treated a woman who was having a 'suspected diabetes emergency'.
The air ambulance landed close to Bishop's Primary School, but a spokesperson for the school has confirmed the person taken ill was not a pupil or member of staff.
A fire appliance from Thetford was also called to assist the ambulance service.
The woman was taken to West Suffolk Hospital by land ambulance and is said to be in a serious but stable condition.
