Two teenagers have been airlifted to hospital after being injured in separate rugby matches in Penrith on the same day.
In the first incident, a 13-year-old boy was injured by a tackle in a game at around 2pm on Saturday 1 April.
He was assessed and treated by the Great North Air Ambulance before being flown to Carlisle's Cumberland Infirmary with a neck injury that is not thought to be life threatening.
Around two hours later an 18-year-old man was hurt in a collapsed scrum at a separate rugby match, also in Penrith.
He was flown to hospital in Middlesbrough with serious neck and spinal injuries, where he is said to be in a stable condition.
