Two men have escaped with cuts and bruises after the light aircraft they were in landed upside down in a field in Staffordshire.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the field near Yeatsall Lane in Abbots Bromley shortly before 5.55pm today.
An advanced Community Paramedic in a rapid response vehicle, a Paramedic Area Support Officer in a rapid response vehicle, an ambulance crew and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Staffordshire attended.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “It’s understood the two men managed to get out of the aircraft and walk to a nearby farmhouse for help, then went back to the aircraft where the crews found them.
“They had head lacerations and bruises, both were immobilised with the use of spinal boards and both were taken to the University Hospital of North Staffordshire; one by land ambulance, the other by air ambulance.”
