The Press and Journal (Moray) - - LOCAL NEWS - BY SCOTT MA­CLEN­NAN

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.”
