NHS bosses have apologised to Beverley rugby league player Adam Robson after he had to wait for more than an hour for an ambulance.
Robson, 22, suffered a triple break to his leg in a cup final against Hull Dockers at Haworth Park at the weekend.
He suffered suspected hypothermia in the wait, and was treated by his mother, a doctor.
Yorkshire Ambulance Service has apologised “for any distress caused following this 999 call”.
A spokesperson for Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust added: “Demand for our service continues to be extremely high and we would like to reassure members of the public that we are making every effort to reach patients as quickly and as safely as possible.”
