A woman has died after being trampled by a cow while out walking.

 

It is believed the grandmother was walking with her family near the village of Belford in Northumberland when a herd of cattle ran towards them.

 

A spokesman from Northumbria Police confirmed they received a call just after 2pm on April 4 with reports of a female casualty in Belford who had been injured by a cow.

 

Marian Clode, 61, from Greater Manchester, was airlifted to Newcastle’s Royal Victoria Infirmary by Great North Air Ambulance service.

 

A spokesperson from the Great North Air Ambulance said: "We received a call from the Belford area at about 3:13pm on April 3.

 

"The doctor-led trauma tram performed advanced procedures on the scene, and also carried out a blood transfusion on the scene.

 

"The flight from scene to hospital took about 20 minutes and the patient arrived in a critical condition."

 

Mrs Clode later died from her injuries.

 

A Health and Safety Executive (HSE) spokesman confirmed they were investigating the incident. An inquest has been opened.
