Air ambulance scrambled for crash cyclist
A MOUNTAIN bike rider had to be airlifted to hospital when he suffered head injuries in a crash near the Speech House in the Forest of Dean.
The rider was spotted by a passer-by at around lunchtime on Sunday and paramedics were called.
As it would have taken the road ambulance an estimated 45 minutes to reach the stricken rider the Great Western Air Ambulance was scrambled and arrived at the scene in 10 minutes.
The crew then flew the cyclist to Frenchay Hospital in Bristol, where he was treated for head injuries which were not thought to be life threatening.
