WARWICKSHIRE & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance (WNAA) were called out to two separate incidents in Shipston last week.

On Thursday morning, the crew arrived on scene just before 9am after a 93-year old man suffered a suspected heart attack.

The man was showing clear signs of agitation and was treated for his condition and sedated by the WNAA doctor.

He was then airlifted to University Hospitals Coventry & Warwickshire for further treatment.

Meanwhile in the afternoon, the crew were called out at about 3.54pm by West Midlands Ambulance Service after a 45-year-old woman suffered a potential stroke.

The patient had suffered a sudden headache and was showing clear signs of agitation and was given pain relief and sedated before being flown to the same hospital.

The current condition of both patients is unknown.

Last year the service attended 135 medical incidents and each mission they attend costs about £1,700.
