A sweep was flown to hospital by air ambulance after falling two storeys from a roof in Combs yesterday.

The East of England Ambulance Service was called to the scene just before 11am and sent a fast response car and ambulance crew.

A spokesman said: “The patient involved was a male in his early 40s who was conscious and breathing and said he had fallen two storeys.”

The East Anglia Air Ambulance’s Anglia Two crew of Dr Neil Berry, Sarah Hazelman, and critical-care paramedic Chris Neil arrived at 11.26am and the man was sedated to be flown to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge with neck and back pains and laboured breathing.

EAAA said: “The patient is thought to be in a potentially life-threatening condition.”
