A worker has been taken to hospital with significant head injuries after falling from a roof on Poulton Industrial Estate this morning.

The man was taken to Royal Preston Hospital after falling around 30 feet from Deltec Industries Ltd in Wyrefields, off Bracewell Avenue, at around 9.30am, police said.

He had been on the roof carrying out work when he either fell off it or through it, a spokesman added.

One resident reported seeing a helicopter from the North West Air Ambulance service circling the estate before landing towards the back of Bracewell Avenue.
