A man is in a “serious but stable” condition after he had a heart attack and was airlifted to hospital.

The East Anglian Air Ambulance was called to Wetheringsett, near Stowmarket, earlier today, landing at 10.30am.

Medics, Dr Audun Langhelle and critical care paramedic, Rod Wells, were flown to the scene by captain Neil Waller.

They along with colleagues from a land ambulance crew resuscitated the man, who is in his fifties.

An air ambulance spokesman said he was in a “serious and stable” condition after being flown to the Norwich and Norfolk University Hospital.
