A man was airlifted to hospital after he fell from a window and became trapped in a discarded bed.

Emergency services were called to York Road, Hartlepool, shortly after 1630 GMT on Friday.

Cleveland Police said the man, in his mid-30s, fell from a first-floor window on to a wooden framed bed. He was freed and taken to hospital by air ambulance.

Police said his injuries were not life-threatening and there were no suspicious circumstances.

The road was closed while emergency services freed the man from the bed and was reopened about two hours later.
