A man was flown to hospital after being crushed by a roll of paper weighing about a tonne.

The man, believed to be in his 30s, was working at Childreditch Industrial Estate, in Childerditch Hall Drive, Little Warley, when the incident happened on Wednesday at about 12pm.

Paramedics from East of England Ambulance Service were called at about 11.10am and treated the man at the scene before he was taken to hospital.

Firefighters

Essex County Fire and Rescue Service said the man was freed from the roll before they arrived, but they helped him into the air ambulance.

Gary Sanderson, a spokesman for East of England Ambulance Service, said: “On arrival, a man was found in a critical condition and following extensive treatment by land and air ambulance crews, he was flown direct to the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel.”

An Essex Police spokesman said his injuries are not life threatening.
