Magpas Helimedix sent a team to a field outside of the Fenland town at around 9.30am to treat the rider.

A Magpas spokesman said the woman, in her 50s, awoke and complained of “severe neck discomfort”

The medics gave her pain relief whilst working alongside a local GP and East of England ambulance crew that was also at the scene.
