Elberton Road, Sea Mills, Bristol

Firefighters have rescued a man after he suffered a seizure while working on the roof of his garage.

When crews arrived they found the man in his 30s conscious and breathing, but unable to get down.

Using safe working at height and confined spaces (SHACS) equipment crews climbed up to the man. Working with paramedics he was assisted on to a stretcher and then on to a platform on the rescue tender, before being lowered to the ground.

He was then taken to hospital by ambulance but his injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.
