A man in his 30s has suffered a serious arm injury after falling through a roof at an industrial estate in Lingwood.

The air ambulance and East of England Ambulance Service Trust (EEAST) were called to the incident on South Burlingham Road just after 2.35pm this afternoon.

It is believed that the man fell about 20 feet, and was breathing and conscious when crews arrived.

He was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital via land ambulance with what an EEAST spokesperson described as a 'serious, but not life-threatening' arm injury.
