A teenager was taken to hospital at the weekend, after suffering a 15-feet fall.

An ambulance crew was called at 3.08am on Sunday to the University of East Anglia, after a man, believed to be in his late teens, fell from the university's walkway.

The crew treated the man, who suffered injuries to his leg, following a club night at the Nick Rayns LCR venue.

The man was then taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital for further treatment to his injuries, and was believed to have suffered a dislocated ankle.

He fell from the walkway above the university shop, landing near the ATM machines outside of the student's union.

The man was conscious and breathing when the ambulance crew took him to hospital.
