An elderly man from Leighton was forced to be rescued by fire crews when he became trapped between two walls outside his property.

The pensioner called for help to Grasmere Way at around 4.05pm yesterday afternoon after a two-foot garden wall fell on him.

It is understood the man had fallen and twisted his leg and due to a medical condition he was unable to free himself and remained trapped in the space between the two walls.

Once emergency services arrived he was freed and taken by ambulance to Milton Keynes General to be treated for his injuries.
