An air ambulance landed in Abbey Fields this morning after an elderly man was taken ill in Kenilworth.

Two ambulances were sent, and a helicopter from Midlands Air Ambulance in Strensham landed in the field next to Abbey Hill.

Upon arrival, the man’s medical episode had stopped, but he still required medical attention. He was taken to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire by land ambulance.
