Paramedics were called just before 8am to Ayton Road industrial estate in Wymondham.

It is believed the man in his thirties had a broken leg.

An ambulance from Attleborough arrived at the Barley Chalu aluminium coaters factory and called the fire service to help free the man.

Crews from Wymondham and Carrow released him using air bags and hydraulic rescue equipment.

Ambulance service spokesman Gary Sanderson said: “The original 999 call we received was to a report of steel girders falling on top of a man and his legs were possibly trapped.

“The ambulance crew at the scene treated, stabilised and immobilised the man before he was taken to Norfolk and Norwich Hospital for further care. The injuries are not thought to be life threatening.”
