Magpas Air Ambulance flew to dense woodland just to the north of Woburn on Saturday afternoon to help an injured mountain biker.

Doctor Phil Morgan and Paramedic Simon Standen landed at about 2.10pm to treat a man in his 20s who suffered a fall, after a jump on a mountain bike.

The Magpas team assessed the patient who had sustained serious back injuries. They provided him with pain relief and immobilised him to protect his injuries, before flying him to Addenbrooke’s Hospital for further investigation.

On arrival at the hospital, the man was in a serious but stable condition.

An EEAST paramedic crew and EEAST Hazardous Area Response Team (HART) were also in attendance.
