A man has suffered serious head and spine injuries after falling through a garage roof in Driffield.

Emergency services were called to an incident last night at about 9.45pm after two men fell through the roof of an ATS Garage.

Ambulance crews arrived on the scene in Westgate, Driffield, but needed assistance from Humberside Fire and Rescue crews to gain access to the two men who were locked inside.

Firefighters had to cut through a fence to get to the victims.

One man suffered serious head and spinal injuries and was taken to Hull Royal Infirmary where his condition is not known.

The other man, who only suffered only minor injuries, was treated at the scene by paramedics.

The reason as to why the two men were on the roof is unclear but the matter is in the hands of Humberside Police.
