Fencing at a Crossrail development site in the City of London came loose in today’s high winds and struck a pedestrian.
An ambulance attended the scene of the incident outside Moor House on London Wall and treated the injured passer-by.
A spokesperson for Crossrail said:
“Due to high winds, a section of fencing surrounding the Crossrail worksite at Liverpool Street became dislodged this morning and came into contact with a passing pedestrian. Crossrail is investigating the incident.”
The fencing was later secured by the site contractor, Laing O’Rourke.
