A woman was airlifted to hospital in a critical condition after being trampled by cows.

The Great North Air Ambulance was scrambled about 1.40pm on Monday after the incident near Brampton in Cumbria.

The woman from Cheshire, in her 60s, suffered serious head, spinal, chest and pelvic injuries when she was trampled by numerous cows at the site while she was walking with her dog.

North West Ambulance Service requested help from the Great North Air Ambulance Service’s trauma team and the charity’s Guardian of the North aircraft flew the scene. She was treated at the site by the air ambulance’s doctor and crew and then flown to the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle upon Tyne in a flight lasting 12 minutes.

A GNAAS spokesperson said the woman was critical but stable on arrival at hospital.
