An 11-year-old boy has been airlifted to hospital in Newcastle with serious head injuries after falling from a vehicle.

The boy has been taken to the Royal Victoria Infirmary following the incident in Cliburn near Penrith at around 12.15pm today.

The Great North Air Ambulance Service's Pride of Cumbria helicopter was called to help paramedics from the North West Ambulance Service at the scene.

The helicopter's doctor and paramedic assessed, treated and anaesthetised the boy before he was flown to the RVI.

The GNAAS say the boy was flown to a specialist unit in 15 minutes, describing his condition as critical.
