A MAN was left with serious leg injuries after an industrial strimmer reportedly exploded.

The incident caused shrapnel from the machinery to cut his leg in Withybed Lane, Inkberrow, shortly before 3.30pm on Saturday (May 3).

An ambulance, community first responder and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham went to the scene where the man was treated for 'significant lower leg injuries' before being taken to the Alexandra Hospital for further assessment and treatment.
