Emergency Off Manor Drive

For those wanting to know about all the emergency services around The Manor Drive near Avondale Avenue and Manor Way this morning, apparently there was a nasty accident bringing two fire engines, two ambulances and several police vehicles to the area at around 11am. The Air Ambulance was also needed and landed on the Parochial School's playing field.

It seems a wall had collapsed in a house that builders were working on and somebody underneath was crushed. Extent of injuries are not know as yet but it is hoped that the victim (and patient) will have been helped by the timely arrival of all the emergency vehicles.

The blog wishes them a speedy recovery.

Update (26th February)

The blog is sad to report that the man crushed under the wall died from his injuries a week later. For more details please see the local Guardian report.
