An air ambulance has been flown to Wisbech following an emergency call to a man in his 30s who had collapsed and lost consciousness.

The emergency happened at 1:51pm this afternoon when Magpas Helimedix (Doctor Jon Birks and Paramedic Oliver Robinson) arrived at a house in the centre of town.

“A man (in his 30’s) collapsed, lost consciousness and then suffered a seizure,” said a Magpas spokesman.

“The Magpas team were first on the scene, alongside a First Responder. The Helimedix administered medication to improve the patient’s state of health. The man was then accompanied to King’s Lynn Hospital, in a land ambulance, in a stable condition”
