A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “When ambulance staff arrived they found a teenage girl who had suffered very serious injuries.

“Crews immediately began advanced life support and she was quickly transferred to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham on blue lights and sirens with the doctor from the air ambulance travelling on the back of the ambulance to continue emergency treatment en-route.
