A worker on the construction of a power station in Nottinghamshire was yesterday airlifted to hospital after he suffered injuries to his legs.
The GMB union confirmed there had been a “serious accident” at the Staythorpe site, which is located near Newark.
Union official Andy Fletcher said: “Apparently a pipe fell on to a worker, crushing his legs. He was taken to hospital via air ambulance from the site.”
The Health and Safety Executive is investigating.
