Air ambulance lands in Barkingside car park after man ‘falls from height’

A man believed to be in his 30s has been taken to hospital after a “fall from a height”.

London Air Ambulance was called at about 11.35am this morning and landed in Fullwell Cross car park in Craven Gardens, Barkingside.

The man was taken to Royal London Hospital, Whitechapel with head injuries.

Katherine Singh said that she had parked in the car park and when she returned from shopping she found a police car baring her entry.

She said: “You don’t normally see the air ambulance in the middle of the car park. There were lots of people watching on the street and standing around.”

A spokesman for London Ambulance Service said: “We were called to reports of a fall from height. One patient reported to be in his 30s was treated for a head injury and taken by road ambulance accompanied by the air ambulance doctor.”
