Rubbish collecting residents made a shocking find while out searching for litter – a semi-conscious man.

The 39-year-old had to be rushed to hospital after being found lying in Wolverton’s Church Street in an incapacitated state at 11.48am yesterday.

The man was discovered by Wolverton & Greenleys Town councillor Marie Osborne, who was taking part in a bulky waste collections day as part of the ‘Don’t Rubbish Wolverton’ campaign.

She had been about to ask a resident to move a car when she saw the man.

Wolverton’s neighbourhood management officer, Thomas Brockway, was also on the scene.

He said: “There was a man lying on the ground in a semi-conscious state.

“I called an ambulance and stayed with him until it came.

“He had a huge pain in his stomach and was slipping in and out of consciousness.

“He was a strong man, quite burly, but he was unable to use his legs.”

The man was found by the entrance of the nursery school in Church Street.

A spokesman for South Central Ambulance Service said: “We were called out at 11.48am yesterday. A 39-year-old male was experiencing a medical emergency.

“One ambulance attended the scene and conveyed him to MK General.”

Twelve tonnes of waste were collected during the bulky waste amnesty.
