Air ambulance called in to take woman to hospital
A woman has been taken to hospital by the Great North Air Ambulance after becoming unwell inside a house.
The charity's helicopter was called in by the North East Ambulance Service after they answered a report in the Oakerside area of Peterlee at 8am.
A rapid response paramedic was on the scene four minutes after the initial report, with back up called in to help transport the woman to hospital.
The helicopter used a nearby playing field to land as its team answered the call out.
