Baxters worker cut free from machinery

FIREFIGHTERS had to cut free a worker trapped in machinery at a Moray factory.

The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service were called to the Baxters factory in Fochabers earlier today after receiving reports of an industrial accident involving a man.

Two appliances, one from Elgin and one from Fochabers responded to the call at around 10.57am.

Crews used a reciprocating saw to cut away machinery and successfully managed to release him.

The Scottish Ambulance Service were also on the scene and the man was taken by air ambulance to hospital for treatment.

Police Scotland were also in attendance and the matter has been reported to the Health and Safety Executive.
