A boy was airlifted to hospital after suffering serious injuries when he fell in the Lake District.

The eight-year-old from Arnside in Cumbria was running downhill when he hit his head at the site near Seatoller in Borrowdale.

The Great North Air Ambulance Service helicopter was scrambled at 9.45am on Saturday and flew to the scene after the boy became unwell.

A GNAAS spokesperson said: “On arrival on scene the aircrew doctor and paramedic team assessed and treated the young boy for his injuries before flying him to hospital in Newcastle.

His condition was described as stable when he arrived at the Royal Victoria Infirmary 20 minutes later.
