Rugby Editorial 28th Oct, 2016 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

An elderly woman has suffered potentially serious head injuries after falling from her bicycle.
The fall, which did not involve any other vehicles, happened outside the Raglan Arms pub in Dunchurch Road just after noon on Monday (October 24).
By chance, a paramedic area support officer was passing tended to her within seconds, followed by an ambulance and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The woman, who was in her late 70s, had suffered potentially serious head and facial injuries and had a reduced level of consciousness. She wasn’t wearing a helmet.
“She was assessed at the scene and given pain relief before being taken on blue lights by land ambulance to the major trauma centre at University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire. The doctor from the aircraft travelled with the crew.”
