UPDATE @ 13:00 – It has been confirmed that although the air ambulance was called to the scene, the specialist skills of the HEMS term were not required in the end.

The air ambulance was on the ground for only a matter of minutes before returning to base at Andover.

UPDATE @ 20:25 – Sadly, it is understood that the patient – a woman from Newport – could not be saved and she died at the scene.

Members of John’s Club and People Matter IW have paid tribute to the lady – who Island Echo are not naming – this evening.
