Air ambulance crew have been called to a hat-trick of incidents in north Norfolk today.

Anglia One, which is based at Norwich Airport, first helped at the scene of a serious road crash on Holt Road, Cawston, at about 8am, when the crew flew a woman in her 20s, who had serious head injuries, to Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge, first treating her with an anaesthetic at the scene.

On their way back to base, the crew was called at 12.30pm to a man in his 50s who had been taken ill at home in Mundesley.

Captain Neil Waller landed in a nearby field and Dr Victor Inyang and critical care paramedic Gary Steward gave the man an anaesthetic before airlifting him to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.

Later in the afternoon, the helicopter landed in playing fields in Cromer to help a woman who had hurt herself in a fall at home. She was treated at the scene and then taken by road ambulance to the Norfolk and Norwich.
