The spokesperson said: "We sent to the scene an ambulance crew who were assessing and treating one patient for non life threatening injuries. The patient was assessed and treated at the scene by our crew and was taken onto Stoke Mandeville Hospital."

Witness reports state that onlookers rushed towards the secondary school in search of someone with medical training.

Before the emergency services arrived on the scene, PE teachers were sent to check on the man lying in the middle of the road, an Aylesbury Vale student told The Bucks Herald.

School staff used a medical kit to assess and protect the man before the paramedics' fast arrival on the scene.

Thames Valley Police officers also arrived to provide assistance and make the area safe.

The injured patient was taken away on a stretcher before being secured in an ambulance and zoomed off to A&E.
