Man hurt after falling down well near Salisbury

A man has been seriously hurt after falling into a well near Salisbury.

Fire crews were called to an outbuilding in East Winterslow at around 1830 GMT on Monday.

Emergency support teams from Salisbury were joined by rope rescue teams from Trowbridge and Chippenham who worked with paramedics to lift the man out of the 30 feet (9m) deep well.

The entire operation took two hours, and once the man was freed he was taken to hospital.
