A man in his 50s is in critical condition in hospital after a car came off the road, rolled and ended upside down in a field near Manea yesterday.

He was found trapped in the vehicle with internal injuries. Another man, also in his 50s, was lying outside the car when the emergency services got to the scene.

Magpas Helimedix (Doctor Nick Foster and volunteer Paramedic Sally Bloor) arrived at the scene in a Magpas Rapid Response BMW at 8.55pm.

They were joined by two East of England Ambulance crews (EAAA), a Fire & Rescue crew and Cambs Police.

After the man was freed from the car, the Magpas team provided A&E care and accompanied him in a land ambulance to Peterborough City Hospital, monitoring his condition all the way.
