Magpas Helimedix arrived just after 2.30pm and worked alongside the East Anglian ambulance service to assess the young patient and provide him with pain relief.

A Magpas spokesman said: “Fortunately the boy did not suffer any serious injuries. “He was then taken to Peterborough City Hospital in a land ambulance (in a non-life threatening condition).”

Dr Nick Scott and paramedic Keiran Bromley were on board the Magpas helicopter which was flown by pilot Craig Redman and crew member George Philips.
