Photos: Air ambulance lands on Highbridge footpath to help patient

Residents in Highbridge could hardly believe their eyes when an air ambulance flew into the town and landed on a footpath on Monday (12th March).

The green Great Western Air Ambulance landed on the path behind Havage Close, Highbridge shortly after mid-day.

Its paramedics assisted ambulance crews in dealing with a nearby medical emergency.

Great Western Air Ambulance Charity spokeswoman Rebecca Miller told "We attended an incident in the Highbridge area, and our crew were on the scene within 4 minutes. The patient was land-assisted to Musgrove Park Hospital."
