A student has been airlifted to a London hospital after sustaining a serious head injury during a football match.
Emergency teams were called to the Victoria Recreation Ground on Knights Avenue in Canterbury just before 11am this morning.
It is believed a sixth form student from the independent King's School was hurt in the incident during a game - but this is still to be confirmed.
The Kent Air Ambulance landed on the recreation ground and specialist doctors carried out what is known as rapid sequence intubation - a method to keep airways clear - at the side of the pitch before being lifted to Kings College Hospital in London.
However, the lift-off was hampered temporarily due to fog in the area, before the pupil was whisked to the hospital.
More as get it.
