Driver airlifted to Addenbrooke’s after crashing during banger racing meeting at Norfolk Arena, King’s Lynn
A 28-year-old driver was airlifted to hospital after suffering severe head and arm injuries in a banger racing smash.
A police helicopter flew two Magpas Helimedix emergency medics from Cambridge, landing in the middle of the Norfolk Arena, in King's Lynn.
The Helimedix team provided intensive care, anaesthetising the man and putting him on a life support machine.
The Helimedix team then escorted the patient, who was flown by the police helicopter to Addenbrookes Hospital.
A Magpas spokeswoman said: 'His condition is described as critical but stable. We have no other details at this time.'
The Magpas' Helimedix team were in Cambridge when the accident happened at last night's banger meeting at the Norfolk Arena.
Police cleared pedestrians at Parkers Piece to allow the police helicopter to land.
