A boy received pre-hospital care by the ambulance service pitch-side after he was injured whilst playing Rugby in Warwickshire this morning.

West Midlands Ambulance Service received a 999 call to Mayo Road in Shipston-on-Stour at 11.30am (Sunday). A community first responder, a community paramedic, an ambulance and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The 11-year-old boy sustained a serious head injury during a rugby tackle. Whilst he hadn’t been knocked unconscious, ambulance crews were concerned with his disorientation following the incident.
