45 Year-Old Mark Rayner Jailed For 15 Years
Impaled Man Rescued
A man's had to be rescued through the roof of a house in St Albans, Hertfordshire, after getting impaled on a table leg in the loft.
The elderly man was stuck on the metal desk in the loft at his home in Westfields, St Albans on the evening of Saturday 24 November 2012.
Roof tiles were removed and the man was lowered down to an ambulance via an aerial platform. He was taken to a specialist trauma centre, St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, west London.
A spokesperson for the East of England Ambulance Service said: "This was a very delicate incident to deal with and our crews worked extremely hard alongside the fire service in a very difficult environment to treat, stabilise and immobilise him before he was removed out of the roof.
“Due to the confined space, the fire service removed a section of the roof so the patient could be passed through onto their aerial ladder which brought him down to ground level.”
An 18-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering Leonne Weeks, 16, who was found dead on a path in Rotherham.
