A cyclist was airlifted to hospital after being knocked out when he fell from his bike on a Cumbria hill.

The 22-year-old suffered head injuries when he came off his machine on Great Dun Fell on Saturday.

The Great North Air Ambulance was scrambled at 1.50pm and flew to the site.

A spokesperson for the charity said: “The on-board doctor-led trauma team assessed and treated the patient before flying him to Newcastle’s Royal Victoria Infirmary within 15 minutes, where he arrived in a stable condition.”

The Great North Air Ambulance Service said it worked with the North West Ambulance Service during the incident.
