Man taken to hospital after combine harvester tips in North Wootton

A man who was injured after his combine harvester tipped over was taken to hospital by air ambulance today.

The man in his 60s had suspected internal injuries after the incident on farmland in North Wootton near King's Lynn.

Air ambulance crews set off from Norwich Airport just before midday and the man was treated before he was flown to Addenbrooke's Hosptial in Cambridge. The crew landed on a track near the incident.

The medical crew on Anglia One gave the man pain relief and immobilised the patient on to a scoop. They wrapped him in a thermal bubble wrap blanket.
