A 14-year-old boy has been seriously hurt after falling 30ft from a roof through a glass pane in Wiltshire.

The boy was playing with friends on the roof of a building in Southwick when he fell through the glass and hit the ground.

His parents were at his bedside in Frenchay Hospital, Bristol, where he was airlifted and remains in a serious but stable condition.

Wiltshire Police warned parents and young people about the dangers of playing on roofs or near unprotected building sites after the accident at 9.20pm on Monday.

A police spokesperson said: "There are numerous possibilities for injuries to be caused and what for a brief moment in time may appear to be fun can very quickly turn into a tragedy or potential tragedy."
