A TEENAGE boy has been airlifted to hospital after he was found unconscious in woodland.

Emergency services were called to the scene on the junction of Mount Road and Tolladine Road at about 6.30pm last night (Thursday).

Three ambulances, a paramedic area support officer, a Hazardous Area Response Team and the Midlands Air Ambulances from Staffordshire and Strensham were sent to the scene.

The teenager was airlifted to Birmingham Children’s Hospital for further treatment.

Tolladine Road was closed until 8pm whilst emergency services dealt with what police described as a ‘major incident.’

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a teenage boy in some woodland who was suffering from a reduced level of consciousness.

“Following emergency treatment on scene, the boy was carefully moved to the awaiting air ambulance, before being airlifted to Birmingham Children’s Hospital.”
