An elderly woman was rushed to hospital with serious injuries this morning after hoarding fell on her outside H&M.
The woman, thought to be in her 70s , was walking along the pavement in Hammersmith just after 10.30am when the hoarding collapsed.
She was brought to a major trauma centre with leg injuries.
A spokeswoman for London Ambulance said: “We were called at 10:38am today to King Street, Hammersmith to reports of an incident.
“We sent an ambulance crew to the scene.
“We treated a woman at the scene and took her as a priority to a major trauma centre.”
The Metropolitan Police said: “A woman in her 60s was treated by the London Ambulance Service for injuries to her legs.
“It is believed the woman was injured by a fallen wooden hoarding.
“Her injuries are not believed to be life-threatening. The Health and Safety Executive has been informed.”
Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
