AN 11-year-old boy was taken to hospital last night after falling from a tree.

The youngster was playing with friends in a wooded area next to the skatepark at Ingrow Lane, Keighley, when he fell about three metres.

Yorkshire Ambulance Service attended and a crew from Keighley fire station was called out to assist.

The incident happened at about 8pm.

"The boy was in considerable pain," said a fire service spokesman.

"It was quite a difficult area access-wise, so we helped with the casualty and carried him to the ambulance."

The boy was taken to Airedale Hospital with a suspected dislocated shoulder.
