Injured boy airlifted from west Cumbria to Newcastle hospital

An air ambulance flew a boy to a Newcastle hospital this afternoon with a suspected spinal injury.

The Pride of Cumbria was called to Derwent Park in Workington at about 3pm to help the ambulance service after receiving a report the 12-year-old had been hurt playing rugby.

The crew's doctor and paramedic assessed the child, from Workington, before he was airlifted to the speciality treatment unit at the Royal Victoria Infirmary.

His injuries were said to be serious. He was stable on arrival at the hospital.
