Shops shut after man hit by falling glass
One of the busiest retail centres in Inverness has been temporarily closed amid safety concerns after a man was injured by a falling pane of glass.
The man in his 30s was taken to the city’s Raigmore Hospital with facial injuries after the incident at the Inverness Centre retail park on Eastfield Way yesterday afternoon.
It was the second incident involving the outdoor canopies that run along the front of the shops within three days.
Eyewitness Stuart Colcough said: “I was walking out, I took one step then I heard this massive bang.”
He said: “I just managed to get back in the shop, me and this lady, we took some glass, but we heard this massive crash.
“This guy got it right on the head, he was knocked to his knees, and was holding his head, and he was bleeding.
“We immediately shouted at them in the shop to call an ambulance.”
