A man was injured in Gedling, Nottingham yesterday after a crane lifting a hot tub off the back of a delivery truck and into position tipped. The 20 year old man – who was helping deliver the hot tub – was trapped against the wall of a bungalow while the crane boom landed on the bungalow roof and the hot tub landed in the garden.
