A source told the Evening Times: “His arm was trapped by the falling equipment. He was taken to hospital and he’ll need surgery on the arm.”

It is understood the injured man was working alongside a fellow contractor.

Catering Insight spoke to the Health and Safety Executive, and a spokeswoman confirmed that it is investigating the incident, but was unable to reveal details of the companies or individuals involved.
