Staffordshire woman mown down by ride-on grass cutter

A woman has been airlifted to hospital after becoming trapped beneath a ride-on grass cutter in Staffordshire.

She had been mowing the lawn in Park Lane, Ipstone, just after 1430 BST on Friday when she got her leg stuck.

West Midlands Ambulance Service said the patient in her 40s seemed to have had "a bizarre accident" while she was climbing down from the machine.

It said the machine moved forward as she dismounted trapping her beneath it.
