The Essex Air Ambulance was yesterday afternoon (Wednesday) called to a secondary school field in St Albans after a rugby player was injured during a game.

Richard Dunne, media officer for England Ambulance Service Trust (EEAST), said that paramedics were called to Beaumont School, Oakwood Drive, at 4.47pm.

A first response car arrived at 4.54pm, and the air ambulance was called to the school’s field as there were concerns that the 15 year old boy had suffered pelvic and spinal injuries.

After the paramedics examined him, the teenager was taken to Watford Hospital by land ambulance in a stable condition.

There was no further information available from either the EEAST or Beaumont School.
