The man, who has not been named but is in his late 20s, was in the midst of doing a jump on a mountain bike when he suffered the accident.

He was provided with pain relief and immobilised to protect his injuries, before being flown to Addenbrooke’s Hospital for further treatment.

On arrival at the hospital, the man was in a serious but stable condition.

The helicopter crew who flew the patient and the Magpas medical team were Pilot Andy Figg and crew member Lee Kennedy.

An EEAST paramedic crew and EEAST Hazardous Area Response Team (HART) were also in attendance.
