Blyford: Horse rider flown to hospital after fall

A RIDER was flown to hospital after she collapsed following a fall from her horse.

The East Anglian Air Ambulance was called to Blyford, near Halesworth, around 10.30am today.

A 61-year-old female had been out on a hack when she was thrown from her horse and landed on her head.

She managed to remount her horse and ride home but later collapsed.

In view of the potentially serious nature of injuries to her neck and back and her remote location, Anglia Two was sent out to her.
