A pub owner in Chedgrave has praised the emergency services for their quick response after an elderly woman suffered a serious head injury after a fall.
The East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA), ambulance crews and police were called to the village on Sunday after the woman fell and hit her head while out to post a letter.
The air ambulance landed on the bowling green of the nearby The White Horse pub, which is owned by Simon Peck.
Though the woman was rushed to hospital, her condition is not currently known.
Mr Peck described the air ambulance as a 'valuable service' and said: 'We are incredibly lucky to have the EAAA, which is funded entirely by charity money.
'You don't realise how much support there is out there until something like this happens.
'The first ambulance was there in the time it took us to call 999 to get the defibrillator code. It's really impressive.'
