Youth 'critical' after falling through roof in Devon

A 17-year-old youth is in a critical condition after falling through the roof of a disused building in Plymouth.

The teenager was with friends at the disused Imerys China Clay works site at Coypool, Plympton, when he fell through an acrylic sheet roof of a drying shed.

He suffered severe head injuries in the fall, on Sunday afternoon, after landing on a concrete floor.

He was taken to Derriford Hospital where his condition is described as critical but stable.

The Health and Safety Executive has been informed and police are investigating the incident, which is not being treated as suspicious.
