Keswick man seriously hurt by circular saw

A man was flown to hospital for specialist treatment after an accident involving a circular saw left him with “severe” finger injuries.

Ambulance crews were called to a house at Penrith Road in Keswick after the man, 63, hurt himself yesterday (Tues).

They were dispatched just before 11.10am but later called for the Pride of Cumbria air ambulance to be flown to the scene.

The helicopter, which had a doctor and paramedic on board, flew the man to the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle.

He was said to be stable when he arrived.
