A man was taken to hospital with back and face wounds after reports of violence at a skate park in Peterborough.

Paramedics were sent to Werrington Skatepark at 6.49pm last night (Sunday, July 15).

The Magpas air ambulance was called to the scene but was stood down. A 60-year-old man was then transported to Peterborough City Hospital by land ambulance.

A police spokeswoman said: "There was an altercation between two residents. Both received minor injuries but neither wanted to make a complaint against the other. One man was taken to hospital as a precaution."

Magpas is currently fundraising for £1.5 million to bring a new state of the art helicopter to the region.
