A man was airlifted to hospital on Thursday after falling from the roof of his house and onto his head.

The Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance was called to the scene in Cosgrove at 4pm and landed adjacent to the house 18 minutes later.

The man, in his 40s, was assessed by the crew, who anaesthetised him due to the nature of his injury. He was then flown to hospital in Coventry for further assessment and treatment.
