A Magpas Air Ambulance flew in to the airport at 11:33am.

Magpas doctor Lee Soomaroo and paramedic Ryan Warwick assessed the patient in her 20s who had suffered a head injury.

They gave the woman a general anaesthetic at the scene (providing her with A&E level care there and then) and then flew her to Addenbrooke’s Hospital, where upon arrival she was in a very serious but stable condition.

The East of England Ambulance Service and Bedfordshire Fire & Rescue Service crews were also in attendance.
