Man airlifted after recycling centre incident

A man was injured on 7 June at the Thorncliffe recycling plant in Abergele, Wales, and airlifted to a hospital in Stoke-on-Trent.

Local reports say the man suffered “crush” injuries at the facility run by Thorncliffe Building Services and that the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is investigating.

The Welsh Ambulance Service was called at 11.20am on Friday to the Rhuddlan Road site and the man was taken to Stoke Hospital by air ambulance.

An ambulance service spokesperson said: “We responded with one emergency ambulance and one air ambulance, where one person was taken by air ambulance to Stoke Hospital.”

The HSE and Thorncliffe Building Services were unavailable for comment. University Hospitals of North Midlands refused to comment due to confidentiality.
