Air ambulance landed at a bowling club this afternoon as police and paramedics attended an incident at a nearby train station.
The helicopter and emergency services were called to Woodford station at 11.16am after a 60-year-old woman received a “glancing blow” from a train leaving the platform.
A British Transport Police (BTP) spokeswoman said the woman was treated at the scene for cuts and bruises before being taken to hospital for a medical assessment.
She also confirmed the incident was not being treated as suspicious.
“The woman remained on the platform and did not fall onto the tracks,” she added.
Woodford Bowling Club member Alan Farmer, 63, who managed to talk to the helicopter pilots, rushed to the club in King’s Avenue, Woodford Green, after hearing about the emergency landing.
“It was quite exciting, it’s never happened here before,” he said.
