The helicopter landed at around 9.20am in a field next to Mercer Road, close to Moor Hey School and Our Lady and St Gerard's RC Primary School.

After touching down, onboard medics made their way to a home in Marina Grove, off Leyland Road, where a 999 call had been made a short time earlier.

Two road ambulances also rushed to the home in response to the incident, which North West Ambulance Service (NWAS) described as a "medical episode".
