A 15-YEAR-OLD girl had to be airlifted to hospital after falling from her horse.

The Great North Air Ambulance was called to the accident, which happened at a remote spot near Scaling Dam, off the A171 near Whitby, North Yorkshire.

The teenager had suffered a suspected pelvic injury after the fall at 3.40pm on Friday, May 30.

The area was difficult to access by road and the air ambulance was called. She was treated by a doctor-led trauma team from the Great North Air Ambulance Service (GNAAS) before being airlifted in a seven minute flight to the James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough.

Her injuries were thought to be severe but she was described as in a stable condition by the time she reached hospital.
