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.”

The man is understood to be in a stable condition.

A spokesman for the East Anglian Air Ambulance said: “Anglia Two was tasked to an incident in Isleham, landing on scene in a field at 12:59pm.

“Dr Ed Gold and critical care paramedic Jemma Varela were called to a male in his early 60s who had suffered a fall. The team assisted East of England Ambulance Service in assessing the patient before he was taken by land ambulance to Addenbrooke’s Hospital.”
