Accrington Observer - - FRONT PAGE - CHAR­LOTTE GREEN

AN air am­bu­lance was mo­bilised af­ter a man was left with ‘bro­ken bones’ hav­ing fallen from a town cen­tre car park.

Po­lice said an area around the Ac­cring­ton Arn­dale car park by East­gate was blocked off while an air am­bu­lance ar­rived to treat a man who was in­jured af­ter fall­ing from one of its floors.

The man, un­der­stood to be aged in his 50s, was thought to have suf­fered bro­ken bones as a re­sult of the in­ci­dent on Thurs­day af­ter­noon, Septem­ber 28.

Po­lice con­firmed he has been air­lifted to Royal Pre­ston Hos­pi­tal with leg in­juries, hip in­juries and fa­cial in­juries, and is ‘se­ri­ously in­jured’.

A spokesman for Lan­cashire Po­lice said: “We were called at about 12.40pm.

“Am­bu­lance and po­lice were called. It ap­pears he has not come from the top of the build­ing.”
