The Yorkshire Air Ambulance made a hasty stop in North Frodingham on Thursday 16 January after a man fell from a roof.

The helicopter landed on a small grassed area just off Main Street in the village at around 12 noon.

Abby McClymont, Marketing and Communications Manager for Yorkshire Air Ambulance said: “We were alerted just before 12 noon yesterday about a fall from height.

“It was a male patient and when the guys arrived they made the decision to take him to Hull Royal Infirmary with suspected spinal injuries.”

Nafferton resident, Tony Pearce saw the air ambulance land and take off whilst working as a part-time taxi driver.

Mr Pearce said: “I spoke to a few guys on the scene and they said it was all down to the skill of the helicopter pilot that it was able to land in such a small space.”
