Lyme centre closed after driver injured

Delivery man hurt as cages roll back from his lorry

A DELIVERY driver was injured when he fell from the back of his lorry

in Lyme Regis around 9am this morning (Friday).

The town centre was closed for about an hour while emergency services rushed to help the man.

He was later flown to hospital in Dorchester by air ambulance.

His injuries were said not to be life threatening.

A police spokeswoman said they understood he had parked his Somerfield lorry on the hill in Broad Street, near the Co-op, and, when he opened the doors to unload, some of the cages rolled back on top of him, injuring his shoulder.
