Rescuers were called to Appleton Le Moors on Sunday, August 1 by ambulance crews who were unable to find a woman who had reportedly fallen from a horse and suffered a head injury.

Rescue crews quickly found the woman and provided care before handing over to paramedics due to the severity of the injury. The woman was later taken to hospital.
