A TEENAGER has been airlifted to hospital after he dislocated his knee in a Suffolk field.

The 15-year-old was in a field in Haverhill yesterday when he injured himself and because of his location away from the road the RAF rescue helicopter based at Wattisham airfield was called at about 10.30pm to airlift him out.

Ambulance crews could reach the boy but it was felt that it would be too painful for him to be carried across the field.

He was taken aboard the helicopter and flown to hospital in Cambridge for treatment.
