A 23-year-old woman from Belper was airlifted to hospital after coming off her bike on Sunday.

The woman, who sustained serious head injuries, had been cycling with friends near Edale Cross at 6.30pm.

An RAF Sea King helicopter was unable to land, so the casualty and the team paramedic were winched up and flown to Sheffield for further treatment.
