A WORKER has been taken to hospital following an accident on a March industrial estate this afternoon.

The man had been working at Moorhouse and Mohan Ltd in Commercial Road when a fork lift ran over his foot.

Magpas Helemedix flew to the scene together with a rapid response vehicle and a land ambulance. The injured man was taken over land to Peterborough City Hospital.

A spokesman for the East of England ambulance service said the injured man suffered an open fracture to one of the tibia or fibula.
