A man was airlifted to hospital after falling from his horse during a hunt on Friday.

The Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance (DLRAA) was called out to the Twyford and Thorpe Satchville area just before 3pm, arriving on scene by 3.12pm.

A DLRAA spokeswoman said : “The crew landed in a field adjacent to the patient and raced to the scene to help assess and treat the man who had fallen form his horse during a hunt.

“They worked with the East Midlands Ambulance Service on-scene, applying a pelvic binder and giving him pain relief. He was then immobilised for flight to prevent further injury, and taken by helicopter to the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham.”

The man’s condition wasn’t known at the time of going to press.
