An air ambulance landed in Burnham-On-Sea on Sunday evening (May 13th) to help a patient following a medical emergency.

As pictured here, the Dorset and Somerset air ambulance flew in and touched down on the playing fields next to the Bay Centre in Cassis Close at 5.45pm.

The paramedics onboard went to help a patient nearby alongside a Burnham ambulance crew from South West Ambulance Service (SWASFT).

The paramedics returned to the helicopter in the playing fields at 6.25pm and the air ambulance took off without a patient at just after 6.30pm.
