A man suffered a head injury after falling from a ladder at home in Isleham.

An ambulance crew was called after the man’s wife found him walking around the house in a ‘confused’ state.

Paramedics were dispatched to the house at just after 12.30pm on Wednesday.

The East Anglian Air Ambulance was also called and attended an address near the River Lark.

Paramedic Danielle Morley said: “No-one had actually seen what had happened and the man didn’t know himself. He had suffered a head injury so we quickly took him to Addenbrooke’s Hospital, in Cambridge, for further assessment.”
