Two men fighting for life after being injured in scaffold collapse on building site

By Finn Byrne & Ryan Fahey

Two men are fighting for their lives in hospital after being injured after scaffolding on a town hall collapsed at a building site in West London this afternoon.

Emergency services rushed to the scene of the incident in King Street, Hammersmith at around 5.30pm.

Officers, paramedics and fire crews arrived to find two men with potentially life-threatening injuries after being hurt when scaffolding collapsed on the site. They have both been rushed to hospital.

Dozens of emergency vehicles were seen descending on the scene of the serious incident.

A spokesperson for the Met told MyLondon: "An investigation has been launched after two men were injured after scaffolding attached to Hammersmith town hall collapsed late on Wednesday afternoon.

"Officers from the Metropolitan police along with firefighters."

A London Ambulance Service spokesperson said: “We were called at 17.39 today (11 May) to reports of an incident on King Street, Hammersmith.

“We sent a number of resources to the scene, including our Hazardous Area Response Team, ambulance crews, an advanced paramedic, and an incident response officer. We also dispatched London’s Air Ambulance.

“We treated two patients at the scene and took them to a major trauma centre as a priority.”

A spokesperson for LAS said earlier: "At 17:41hrs on Wednesday, 11 May police were alerted to an incident at a construction site in King Street, W6. Officers attended to assist the London Ambulance Service and London Fire Brigade.

"Two men were found with potentially life threatening injuries and were taken to a central London hospital. The Health and Safety Executive has been informed.

The London Air Ambulance landed in a nearby park to the construction site incident on Kings Street.

Following the collapse of a scaffolding structure the Air Ambulance landed in Furnival Gardens, Hammersmith, this evening (May 11).

Two men are currently being treated for possibly life-threatening injuries after the structure attached to Hammersmith Town Hall collapsed.

It was attached to Hammersmith Town Hall and MyLondon understands this to be part of their new 'Civic Campus'.

The new space offers new homes, a cinema and a Council building on Kings Street.

Enquiries into the incident are ongoing.
