Witness appeal after two tragic motorcycle incidents

Our teams had a busy start to the week and flew five times across the region on Monday.

Our critical care team based at Teesside International Airport were called at 12.23pm to Bedlington after reports of a motorcycle collision.

Our paramedic and doctor assessed and treated a patient before accompanying them to hospital on a North East Ambulance Service vehicle.

The full story is available on the Chronicle Live, where it is reported that the male patient subsequently died in hospital. Our thoughts are with those closest to him.

Anyone with information is asked to contact 101 quoting reference 509 29/07/19 or by emailing the officer in charge at  510@northumbria.pnn. police.uk .


Later in the afternoon, our team based at Langwathby flew to Wigton where a person had reportedly been injured in a fall.

After treatment on scene, the patient was flown to hospital for further care.


The team at Teesside International Airport were then stood down from an incident in Hartlepool before being activated to East Lancashire to reports of a road traffic collision.

Three people were reportedly injured when two vehicles collided on the A59, near Clitheroe.

North West Air Ambulance were also in attendance, and following treatment on scene, one patient was flown by GNAAS to hospital.

Our critical care team at Langwathby also flew to the A591 at Ambleside in the evening to reports of a motorcycle collision.
