Builder hospitalised after Kent mudslide

A builder was airlifted to hospital after being caught in a mudslide on a building site in Kent earlier this week.

The employee of Tovil-based company BBS Construction suffered injuries after being trapped up to his waist in mud.

The Health and Safety Executive have confirmed to CN that they are investigating the incident in which the man had been working at a building site at Benenden school in Kent where it is believed an earth bank gave way.

Firefighters attended the scene and helped to free the man after emergency services were notified shortly after 9am on Tuesday.

The injured man was flown to the William Harvey Hospital in Ashford and is under investigation by the HSE.
