UPDATED: Man injured after getting trapped under concrete block when roof collapsed

A MAN is in hospital with a suspected broken pelvis after a concrete roof he was demolishing collapsed on top of him.
Andy Wade, 58, is being treated in hospital for injuries which also include a possible broken wrist after the DIY disaster last night.
The parks and gardens worker from Allerton had been helping a friend to dismantle the roof of a bunker-style outbuilding in the garden to make way for a bigger garage.
It happened at around 7pm at the back of a house in Tanton Crescent, Clayton.


Mr Wade’s friend, Anthony Willerby described the incident as “a mistake” after his pal of more than 30 years ended up trapped under a pile of concrete.
“He wasn’t just doing me a favour helping out. In a way, we were trying to do the neighbours a favour too.
“We were going to use loud machinery and wanted to get the job done so we didn’t wake anyone on Sunday morning.
“We had a plank to put across to support the walls but Andy was on top and the roof collapsed just before we were about to do it.
“I was with him but on the ground at the time. He just went under it. He wasn’t pinned down as such, there wasn’t any pressure on top of him but he couldn’t have got out under his own steam.
