Security staff tended to the man along with police officers and three off-duty doctors before ambulance staff arrived. Additional medical support came with the landing of the air ambulance minutes later.

The man, believed to be 40 years old, was taken away by ambulance and remains in hospital. His condition is described as critical but stable.

The Bullring re-opened the first floor just over two hours later.

Heart spoke to Elliott Marc Jones afterwards; he was in Forever 21 when it happened.
