Man hurt as tractor rolls over him in Bridgnorth

A man had to be airlifted to hospital after a tractor rolled over him at the bottom of a hill in Shropshire.

Paramedics were called to a wooded area in Monkhopton, near Bridgnorth, on Saturday afternoon.

It is believed the tractor rolled down a hill before hitting the man and a fence and then rolled over him, ambulance crews said.

The man, thought to be aged in his 40s, was treated at the scene for a possible fractured pelvis and internal injuries.

He was given pain relief at the scene and was airlifted to Birmingham's Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
