A man in his late 60s suffered a serious head injury and was rushed to hospital after he fell from a ladder at a city home.

The accident happened five days ago at an address on Long Lane in Garston.

Residents, who described the man as a "lovely fella" said his fall took place while he was painting the outside of the house.

An air ambulance was dispatched to the scene and landed closeby on the park area close to the Lifestyles Sports Centre.

He was then taken to Aintree Hospital where his latest condition is unknown.

Merseyside Police was also called to the incident, at about 3.15pm last Wednesday.
