An off-road motorcyclist was taken to hospital with abdominal injuries on Monday night.

Emergency services were called to a field at Upper Farm, Penwortham, near Preston, at around 6.30pm.

Kev Camplin, Bowland Pennine Mountain Rescue Team leader said: “We were called by the ambulance service at 6.30pm last night. We responded with two Land Rover mountain rescue ambulances and 12 mountain rescuers.

“The casualty had fallen off his motorbike in an off road incident.

“By the time the team arrived, he was already being treated by the ambulance service and helimed.

“Due to the fading light and the casualty being covered in petrol, he was not transported by helicopter to hospital so the team evacuated him the 500 metres to the local land ambulance.

“The team stood down at 8pm.”
