Teenage boy suffers neck injury playing rugby in Great Yarmouth

A teenage boy suffered a neck injury while playing rugby in Great Yarmouth.

Emergency crews were called to a playing field in the town at just before 1pm on Saturday.

The Norwich-based Anglia One air ambulance was called out and a crew worked with paramedics from the East of England Ambulance Service to assess the 13-year-old boy.

He was taken to hospital by land ambulance, but there was no further information about his condition.

Anglia One was called to Sheringham to treat an elderly man who had suffered an injury at his home in Sheringham. The crew flew him to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.
