Girl airlifted after Stoke upon Tern swing fall

A 12-year-old girl had to be airlifted to hospital after falling from a rope swing in Shropshire.

She fell from the swing at a property in Stoke upon Tern shortly before 12:30 BST on Saturday.

West Midlands Ambulance Service said that because of the house's remote location, the air ambulance had to be used to take the girl to hospital.

She was taken to Telford's Princess Royal Hospital with leg injuries, the ambulance service said.
