Two teenagers were airlifted to hospital in separate motorbike accidents on Saturday (July 12).

The first incident saw the air ambulance scrambled at 2.25pm to a motocross track in Kettering where a 15-year-old had been injured after being thrown over the handles of her bike.

A spokesman for the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance said: “On the arrival of the air ambulance crew, the patient had already been placed on a long board and given a collar.

“The air ambulance crew then provided advanced pain relief and anti-sickness drugs before airlifting him to University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire for further treatment.”

The air ambulance was called out again at about 6pm to Slipton, near Thrapston, where a 19-year-old woman had fallen from her bike and suffered leg injuries.

An air ambulance spokesman said: “She was given advanced pain relief and her wounds were dressed. She was then airlifted to Peterborough General Hospital for further investigation.

“Both patients were handed over to hospital staff within an hour of WNAA receiving the emergency call.”
