A farmer was airlifted to hospital after suffering serious injuries when he was crushed by cows.

The Great North Air Ambulance was scrambled to Kirkby Stephen in Cumbria at 8am on Thursday where the 71-year-old had been trapped against a wall.

A spokesperson for the GNAAS said: “He had sustained head, facial, chest and abdomen injuries and was assessed and treated by the GNAAS doctor-led trauma team.

“The patient was then flown to James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough within 16 minutes where he arrived in a serious but stable condition.”
