A dock worker has suffered a broken leg after a coal avalanche buried him up to his neck on Immingham Docks last night.

East Midlands Ambulance Service paramedics attended and were assisted by Humberside Fire and Rescue Service firefighters in transporting the man on a stretcher into a caged hoist.

A dockside crane was used to lift the man from the ship’s hold to an ambulance and the quayside.

The man fell at around 9.30pm.

A fire service spokesman said: “The casualty had been working in the hold when a build up of coal on the side of the hold slipped down on to him.”

The dock worker was taken to Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital, where he is recovering.
