A teenaged boy was hospitalised after sustaining a serious leg injury playing football in Harleston yesterday evening.

The ambulance service and a volunteer critical care paramedic from Suffolk Accident Rescue Service were mobilised at around 6.50pm and sedated the boy before applying a splint.

He was then transported to Norfolk and Norwich Hospital, where he was said to be in a ‘stable’ condition upon arrival.
