A MAN found unconscious in Royston was rushed to hospital after an air ambulance landed in the town.

Paramedics found him on Saturday afternoon after being called to a Church Lane property at 12.26pm.

Crews from Haverhill, Letchworth and Melbourn attended the scene but due to the nature of the call, the East Anglian Air Ambulance was also called.
