Work­man in­jured in park ac­ci­dent

Stockport Express - - News -

A WORK­MAN in­jured in an ac­ci­dent at a park in Stock­port re­mains se­ri­ously ill in hospi­tal, po­lice have said.

Emergency ser­vices were called to Ab­ney Park in Cheadle at around 1.45pm on Fri­day (Novem­ber 30).

Po­lice ac­tiv­ity ap­peared to cen­tre around a mini road roller, which was taped off by of­fi­cers.

The ex­act cir­cum­stances sur­round­ing the in­ci­dent re­main un­clear, how­ever the man is said to have been work­ing at the time.

A spokesman for the Health and Safety Ex­ec­u­tive said the agency has been in­formed, but en­quiries are still in the very early stages.

Wit­nesses re­ported see­ing a num­ber of po­lice ve­hi­cles, am­bu­lances and an air am­bu­lance land in the park.

The area, which is pop­u­lar with dog walk­ers and fam­i­lies, was also cor­doned off.

One park user, who asked not to be named, said: “I saw all the po­lice cars near the gates to the park. The po­lice wouldn’t tell me what hap­pened.

“There was a bloke on the floor. He didn’t look like he was in a good way. There was a yel­low he­li­copter in the park too.”

A spokesman for GMP said: “Shortly be­fore 1.45pm we were called to a work­place ac­ci­dent just off Manch­ester Road in Cheadle.”
