Crowds looked on in amazement as an air ambulance made a landing in between shopping trolleys and parked cars after a man in Brackley fell down ladder.

At around 5pm on Sunday, May 12, the Warks and Northants Air Ambulance was called to Brackley town centre and landed in the Waitrose car park just off Manor Road

A spokesman for the WNAA said: “They were called to an address in Brackley to treat a man in his 50s who had fallen from a ladder and as a result was suffering from severe bleeding. We flew him to the major trauma centre at University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire for emergency treatment.”
