A man had to be taken to hospital after being treated for 'life-threatening' asthma.

The incident happened yesterday afternoon in Stalham, when the man in his twenties became unwell.

A crew from the East Anglian Air Ambulance met with an ambulance crew who were en route to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.

They provided additional medications, which the ambulance crew does not carry, to help stabilise the patient.

The Anglia One crew then accompanied the patient to the hospital for further care.
