An elderly woman has been airlifted to hospital with serious injuries after she hit her head on a garage door.
The woman, in her 80s, was injured at an address in Borstal Hill in Whitstable at about 8.30am.
Two police cars and two ambulances were sent to the scene and a Kent Air Ambulance was also called to help emergency crews.
The helicopter landed in a garden before flying the woman to St George's Hospital in London.
Ambulance spokesman Richard Airey said he could not disclose details of the incident as it took place at a private address but it's believed she was hit on the head by a garage door.
Police spokesman Sally Smith said: "Police were called to a property in Borstal Hill, Whitstable following a report that a woman in her 80s had suffered a head injury.
"The injury is deemed serious and she has been taken to hospital for treatment."
Crews have remained at the scene to investigate the circumstances surrounding the incident.
