AN 11-year-old girl was taken to hospital after falling from a tree at school.

The schoolgirl had been playing during her lunchtime, at Stoke College in Stoke by Clare, when the accident happened at around 1pm on Wednesday.

Gary Sanderson, a spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service, said: “The young girl was treated at the scene and conveyed to Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge with a back injury.”

A spokeswoman for the school said the girl had returned to classes on Friday and she had not been badly hurt in the fall.
