A Hastings man was flown to hospital by air ambulance after reportedly getting trapped between a digger and a dumper truck in St Leonards yesterday (Tuesday, February 7).

Emergency services were called to a building site at Horntye Park Sports Complex, off Bohemia Road, where a man had become trapped shortly before 4.30pm.

The 61-year-old sustained leg and pelvic injuries and was treated by paramedics before Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance flew him to St George’s Hospital in London, which landed at the leisure centre.

His injuries were not thought to be life threatening, according to police.

The circumstances have been reported to the Health and Safety Executive, which is making initial enquiries, a spokesman said.
