The driver of a mobile crane was injured last night after it rolled over down an embankment in Herefordshire.

“The driver of the 55 tonne crane, a man in his 30’s, was out of the vehicle when crews arrived and had suffered a serious injury to one of his ears.
“He received emergency treatment from paramedics and the trauma doctor and was then transferred by ambulance to Hereford County Hospital for further treatment.”
