An architect from Dixon Jones has suffered serious back injuries after falling through a staircase in an empty building in Liverpool.
According to reports, the 31-year-old man was carrying out a survey in the Compton building as part of the £500 million city centre Paradise Street project when he fell.
Two fire crews, a search and rescue team and paramedic teams were called to the accident in School Lane, next to the famous Bluecoat Chambers, at 2.45pm on Tuesday (24 January).
The architect was taken to the Royal Liverpool Hospital shortly after.
His present condition is unknown. by Richard Waite
