Police Officer Injured Outside Burnley Pub

An off-duty police officer has suffered serious head injuries after falling down a series of steps outside a Burnley pub.

His head became wedged under a vehicle in the car park of the Inn Hotel on Manchester Road on Friday night after he slipped down a series of stone steps while leaving the venue.

The man was bleeding badly and suffering from severe head injuries when the fire fighters arrived on the scene to remove the car and assist the man to hospital.
Medical staff kept the man in hospital over the weekend, he was then transferred to the Royal Preston Hospital. 

The man’s condition remains stable with hopes for a full recovery.

“He is in hospital and is awake and talking. I think he is going to be there for the next day or two. He is OK and I think the worst is over,” said a police spokesperson.

What should I do if I suffer head injuries?

Head injuries are often hard to identify, but if you suffer trauma to your head, neck or surrounding area you should immediately see a doctor and have a full scan taken. Many head injuries do not appear straight away and by the time you have identified a potential injury it could be too late.
