An air ambulance crew landed in an Ipswich park as medics responded to an incident at a nearby address.

The helicopter landed at Sherrington Road Park, opposite Broomhill Park, just outside the town centre this afternoon.

The landing followed reports of a medical emergency at an address about half-a-mile away, in Lambeth Close, where paramedics also attended.

A man, thought to be in his 60s, was later taken to hospital in an ambulance.

A spokesman for the ambulance service said: “We received a call at 2.24pm to an address in Lambeth Close, Ipswich, to a report of a man unconscious.
