Runner and horse rider airlifted to hospital
A RUNNER and a horse rider were airlifted to hospital after two separate incidents in Suffolk.
A 49-year-old man broke his leg while running on marshy ground in Snape.
He was lying a long distance from the nearest road and so the East of England Air Ambulance was called to assist.
Anglia One, with a doctor on board, arrived at the scene at around 1.35pm.
A spokesman for the air ambulance said: “They immobilised his spine and applied a temporary cast before flying him to Ipswich Hospital.

Around an hour later the crew were called into action again to help a 61-year-old woman who was thrown from her horse in Hollesley, near Woodbridge.
