A spokesman for the South Central Ambulance Service said: ‘The air ambulance was called to attend an incident where a patient had fallen and sustained, what was thought initially was a very serious head injury or a serious medical emergency, causing the fall in the first place.

‘Fortunately, the patient’s condition on arrival was not as bad as first feared, and the approximately 45-year-old female was taken to QA by road for further assessment and treatment.’
