A man suffered serious leg injuries after an incident involving industrial machinery.

It happened in Emneth at just after 12.30pm on Tuesday.

Emergency services were called to reports that a man, in his 60s, had been hurt in an incident involving industrial machinery in the village, on the Norfolk/Cambridgeshire border.

An East of England Ambulance Service paramedic crew went to the scene, while Magpas doctor Rishi Rallan, paramedic Steve Chambers and doctor Mark Tehan arrived in the village in a Magpas Air Ambulance rapid response vehicle.

They found the patient had suffered a serious leg injury.

A spokeswoman for the Magpas Air Ambulance said: “They gave the man advanced pain relief and sedated him at the scene, providing him with A&E level care, before accompanying him to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, King’s Lynn, via land ambulance.

“The patient was in a stable condition upon arrival.”
