Firefighters rescued a man from a roof top this afternoon after construction materials fell on top of him, leaving him unable to move.

The man was trapped under the roofing materials three storeys up when firefighters used an Aerial Ladder Platform to allow them to access him safely, before moving the materials to free him.

Firefighters used an external scaffolding staircase to carry the man to safety, before leaving him in the care of the Ambulance Service by 3.11pm.
