Emergency services were called to The Common, in Saffron Walden, last weekend after a man was taken ill.

It is understood he suffered a cardiac arrest and was treated by the Essex & Herts Air Ambulance before being transferred to a trauma unit.

The East of England Ambulance Service was also called around 3pm on June 24 to reports that a boy – believed to be seven years old - had fallen from a bouncy castle, before sending a crew to assist.

The boy was treated for a back injury and taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital, in Cambridge.

Essex Police were also at the scene, but said it was not a police matter and that they were supporting the paramedics.
