The East Anglian Air Ambulance was called after a rugby player suffered an injury during a game at Little Melton.

The player was hurt in the fixture between the Crusaders 2nds and the Lakenham 1sts yesterday afternoon.

An ambulance went to the scene, but the air ambulance was also needed and landed on the pitch.

It is believed the player suffered a compound fracture to his leg.

Dr Jenny Townsend and Critical Care Paramedic Carl Smith treated the man at the scene before he was left in the care of the East of England Ambulance Service Trust to take him to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital by ambulance.
