A boy suffered a severe arm injury after falling from a fence in Tingley last night (Sunday).

The 12-year-old fell from the 6ft high fence at Woodkirk Academy at around 7.30pm and ripped the flesh from his forearm.

Paramedics managed to climb over the fence to help the boy and firefighters from Hunslet cut the fence gate open so he could be taken to hospital.
