SPEED enforcement on Dartmoor today (Saturday), conducted by Devon and Cornwall Police, saw officers not only deal with drivers flouting the speed limit but also provided initial medical response to a German tourist in Postbridge who had fallen from height.

Police officers were first on scene to the incident at Postbridge Car Park at 1pm after the tourist had fallen from a coach and suffered a head and suspected neck injury. They provided medical response and made the area safe due to the location being busy with traffic and Ten Tors participants.

On arrival of the paramedics the Devon Air Ambulance was requested and swiftly took the tourist to hospital.

The area was made safe by the officers.

More on the speed enforcement day, attended by Times’ reporter Lindsay Turpin, to follow in next week’s paper.
