The woman was flown to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge with a broken wrist, broken arm and broken thigh, among other injuries, which are not believed life-threatening. Her condition is described as stable.

One person was left with cuts and bruises, another with minor injuries, and a further person was taken to hospital.
