The woman, in her 30s, suffered injuries to her lower body in the fall.

A Magpas Helimedix helicopter was called at around 11am on Thursday and landed on the playing field adjacent to the end of Bath Road and Tindall Close.

The Magpas team assessed the patient before administering pain relief and anti-sickness medication.

The woman was then taken in an ambulance to King’s Lynn Hospital, where she is in a stable condition.
