A 12-year-old Rangiora boy has been flown to hospital with suspected back injuries, after falling from his bike at a motor cross event at Linkwater, in the Marlborough Sounds.

St John Ambulance says their on-scene crew treated the boy, who's in a stable condition, but he was flown to Wairau hospital by helicopter as a precaution.
