Air ambulance lands on Luxford Field, Uckfield

An air ambulance landed on the Luxford Field, Uckfield, this morning and a patient who received treatment in the area of Holy Cross Church has been taken to hospital.

Three other ambulances were also at the scene, one of them an estate car.

The Kent air ambulance approached Uckfield from the south east and circled the town centre before landing on the Luxford Field.

South East Ambulance staff and the air ambulance crew were with the patient.

This report was added to Uckfield News at 12.17pm and has been updated since then.

• The Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance costs £6.5 million a year to provide two helicopter emergency medical services to people across the South East.

This life-saving service is almost entirely dependent upon the community, particularly the groups, clubs, business, organisations and individuals who fund-raise on behalf of the Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance.

Here’s how you can help.
