Local news | Drunk Man Falls From Roof | Andover & VillagesAt 1:00 am on Saturday 6 May 2017 police received a call from the occupants of a cottage in Amesbury Town Centre reporting that a man had fallen from their roof and was lying on the ground.

Police and Ambulance attended and found a 19 year old local man who was intoxicated and had sustained head and hand injuries.

Friends of the injured man described him as a “Free Climber” and it is believed that while intoxicated he tried to climb up on to the house and then fell. The occupants reported hearing movement on their roof.

The man was taken by Ambulance to Salisbury District Hospital where he underwent surgery. He sustained a fractured eye socket, a broken wrist, a broken bone in his hand and required stitches to his chin. He has been subsequently released from hospital.

An investigation is ongoing into damage caused to the property.

Sergeant Russell Griffin said: "This man was very lucky not to cause himself more serious injuries and we hope that this will deter him and others from acting in such a reckless manner. We are looking at criminal damage offences in this case and an investigation is underway."
