A FARMER was treated for back injuries and a potential chest injury after the ramp of an animal transporter lorry fell on him.

The man, believed to be in his 30's, was reportedly knocked to the ground before Ambulance crews arrived at the scene on a farm near Malvern Wells.

A spokesman for West Midlands Ambulance Service confirmed one ambulance, a critical care paramedic in a rapid response vehicle and a community first responder attended the scene today (Wednesday, April 23), at around 11.30am.

He was treated at the scene before being taken to Worcestershire Royal Hospital for further assessment.
