Hurt cyclist rescued by military

A military helicopter has been used to help the emergency services rescue a cyclist injured in a forest in central Scotland.

The man was hurt while mountain biking in Carron Glen, west of Denny, at lunchtime.

The ambulance service said its medical helicopter had been unable to land near the injured cyclist so it sought help from the Ministry of Defence.

A rapid response vehicle and ambulance also made their way to the scene.
