Resident Ken Makili was sitting in Goresbrook Park with his family when the air ambulance landed. “There were loads of people in the park when it arrived.
“Everyone was worried that someone had been seriously hurt in a car accident. Thankfully it wasn’t serious, though a lot of us thought it was strange that someone who could walk was taken by air ambulance.”
