A woman in her 40s had to be airlifted to hospital yesterday after she fell whilst riding her horse near Sutton.
A spokesman for Magpas said: “At 4.14pm yesterday afternoon (June 5) Magpas doctor Rosie Dwyer and paramedic Dan Cody, alongside doctor Tristan Dyer, landed in a rural location north-east of Sutton via the Magpas Air Ambulance.
“They had been called to treat a woman who had been injured in a fall from a horse.
