AN air ambulance was sent to Southsea’s D-Day Museum after a worker was injured yesterday.

Emergency crews were called to the Clarence Esplanade museum at 11.50am.

The man suffered an eye injury following an incident with an industrial tool and was taken to Queen Alexandra Hospital by ambulance.

Project manager Vernon Nash said: ‘He has been taken to hospital for treatment and the contractors have been asked to provide a report explaining how his injuries were sustained.

‘The contractor has however advised that the operative is not seriously hurt.’
