A MAN became trapped after a concrete roof fell on top of him.

Three fire engines – two from Havant and one from Cosham – plus the special equipment unit was sent to Park Lane, Bedhampton, at 4.45pm today.

A 48-year-old man was trapped under concrete rubble, after the roof of an air raid shelter he was demolishing, collapsed on him.

Fire services freed the man, who has been taken to Southampton General Hospital, where he is being treated for injuries not thought to be life threatening.

One ambulance from South Central Ambulance Service was sent.

A spokesman for the service said: ‘We were called shortly after 4.30pm as a roof had landed on a 48-year-old male.

‘His legs had become trapped.

‘He is thought to have sustained injuries to the right side of his body, such as his right leg and arm.

‘His injuries are not thought to be life threatening, and he was taken to Southampton General Hospital.’
