The grandson of the man treated for head injuries by the East Anglian Air Ambulance on Monday (November 23) has expressed his thanks to the medics and crew.

Edward Bargate was commenting on Facebook after the air ambulance, flown by Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, landed on Saffron Walden Common at 10.55am to care for his grandad who had fallen over in Hill Street.

He was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge in an ambulance, but did not suffer life threatening injuries.

Mr Bargate said: “I’d like to say thanks to Dr Chesters and CCP Spitzer and all the other ambulance and air ambulance crew, including Prince William, as well as the staff of Waitrose and the kind passer-by who called 999 for my grandad.

“He’s recovering well in hospital and we’re all very grateful for everyone who was there to help.”
