The East Anglian Air Ambulance attended the scene at 5.40pm yesterday to assist the East of England Ambulance Service.

Eyewitnesses described seeing it land near the Chequersfield roundabout.

An ambulance service spokesman said: “An ambulance, an ambulance officer vehicle and East Anglian Air Ambulance were called to Athelstan Walk South, Welwyn Garden City, shortly before 5pm yesterday (September 19) following reports of a man injured in a fall.

“One man was transported to Lister Hospital by road ambulance with serious injuries.”

A spokesman for the air ambulance said: “Anglia Two was tasked to assist the EEAST team with a man in his thirties who had suffered a fall.

“Pilots Elliot Haines and Andy Wray landed the helicopter on a grassy area nearby.

“The critical care team were met by the police who provided them a lift to the scene.”
