A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Ambulance crews were called to reports of a man that had become injured when a ramp from an animal transporter lorry fell on to him.

“The man, believed to have been in his 30’s, was reportedly knocked to the ground but had managed to get out from underneath the ramp prior to the arrival of the crews.

“The farmer was treated at the scene for a back injury and potential chest injuries. He was given pain relief and was fully immobilised before being conveyed to Worcester Royal Hospital for further assessment and treatment.”
