A 63-year-old woman needed hospital treatment after collapsing while exercising in a gym at Castle Sports Complex, Spalding, on Sunday.

Staff at the sports centre in Albion Street gave first aid to the woman before paramedics arrived, within five minutes of being called out, and treated her further before she was airlifted to Lincoln County Hospital.

A spokesman for Castle Sports Complex said: “A 63-year-old woman using the gym at Castle Sports Complex on Sunday required medical assistance on the premises which required the emergency services to be called and the staff at the centre to administer immediate medical assistance.

“The paramedics took the lady to Lincoln County Hospital and the staff at the centre would like to wish her a full and speedy recovery.”
