An elderly walker who was injured after a fall has been airlifted to hospital.

The incident happened at just after 9.00am on The Wrekin, near Telford between Halfway House and Devils Gate.

An ambulance and a paramedic officer in a 4×4 were initially sent to the scene.  An off-duty paramedic also stopped to offer assistance.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The walker, who was in his 80s, had fallen and landed awkwardly.  The crew and paramedic officer were able to make up to the walker in the 4×4 but after assessing the patient requested an air ambulance be sent and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford was dispatched to the scene and landed on the path.

“The walker was assessed at the scene for arm, leg and head injuries before being flown to Royal Shrewsbury Hospital for further treatment.”
