An air ambulance landed next to Burnham-On-Sea lighthouse on Thursday (December 16th) to help a patient during a medical emergency.
The unusual sight of the green Great Western Air Ambulance landing on the beach was reported by beach users at 2.55pm, as pictured here.
A dog walker told Burnham-On-Sea.com: “Two paramedics got out of the helicopter as soon as it landed and they headed off over the dunes carrying medical equipment to help a patient. The helicopter drew quite a bit of attention.”
The crew assisted a land ambulance crew with a patient nearby where several ambulances were also seen.
The paramedics returned to the aircraft at 4.20pm and the helicopter lifted off a short time later without a patient onboard, heading back to its base near Bristol.
