The East Anglian Air Ambulance was sent to Leiston when a man in his early seventies suffered a cardiac arrest at around 7.40am.

The aircraft landed in a field nearby where an ambulance was waiting to take Dr Ed Gold and critical care paramedic, Gary Spitzer, to a private address close by.

The air ambulance team worked alongside their land ambulance colleagues to treat the patient. He was taken to Ipswich Hospital via land ambulance but no-one has been able to give any information on his condition.

Later the air ambulance was sent at around 8.40am to Hoxne, near Eye, to a man in his late seventies who was suffering from serious heart problems.

The medics treated the patient at the scene along with land ambulance colleagues. He was then taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital by land ambulance.

The patient is said to be in a serious but stable condition.
