Wind leaves woman injured

WINDY weather in Whitby left a woman with head injuries after she was “blown off her feet” by the gusts last week.

An ambulance was called to treat the woman who was blown over on East Terrace just outside the Royal Hotel at about 1.45pm on Thursday.

She was given treatment at the scene and taken to Scarborough Hospital for further treatment.

Eye witnesses said she had hit the ground with such force there was a pool of blood on the floor.
