A horse rider has been airlifted to hospital after falling from her horse in Cannock Wood this afternoon.

The incident occurred at a location near Holly Hill Road at just before 3.20pm.

An ambulance, together with the Midlands Air Ambulance from Tatenhill attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Ambulance crews had to negotiate difficult terrain to reach a woman who had fallen from a horse.

“The patient, believed to be in her forties, was treated for lower back injuries. She had to be carried for some distance through dense woodland to a field where the air ambulance had landed.

“The woman was immobilised with the use of a neck collar and placed on a spinal board as a precaution.

“She was also given pain relief before being airlifted to the Royal Stoke University Hospital for further assessment and treatment.”
