Man hurt as digger topples
A MAN was taken to hospital after he was trapped underneath a digger in Uppermill yesterday morning.
The 60-year-old man was injured in a work's accident in Primrose Avenue.
Police were called to the incident at around 11.30am and temporarily closed the road for cleaning.
A GMP spokeswoman said: "The man had somehow become trapped under the digger.
