A RESCUE team was called to a Connah's Quay park to help a teenage boy who suffered an injury.

North East Wales Search and Rescue said they were called to Wepre Park on Sunday afternoon to assist with an incident in Wepre Park.

A spokesman said: "A teenage boy had suffered a leg injury in a location where it was difficult to extract him. Welsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust paramedics had provided casualty care so we set up a rope system to get him up to a path.

"We then carried him to our vehicle and drove him up a steep narrow track to the road for handover to an ambulance crew.

"Get well soon."

A spokesman for the Welsh Ambulance Service said the boy was transferred to the Countess of Chester Hospital.

They added: "We were called to reports of an accident in the Wepre Park area of Connah's Quay at approximately 4.02pm yesterday, Sunday 12 July.

"We sent two emergency ambulances to the scene. One patient was transferred to the Countess of Chester Hospital for further treatment."
