Emergency services are at the Intu Trafford Centre tonight after a 15-year-old boy fell from a footbridge.

Police got a report that a 15-year-old boy had fallen from the footbridge close to Debenhams at around 8pm today October 28.

He suffered serious injuries and is currently in a critical condition.

Five 15-year-old boys were arrested yesterday on suspicion of assault. Four have now been released with no further action while one boy is helping officers with their enquiries.

 Detective Sergeant Stephen Warriner, from GMP’s Trafford borough, said: “This is a tragic incident which has left a boy fighting for his life in hospital. My thoughts are with his family who are understandably beside themselves at this awful time.

 “Since yesterday we have been analysing CCTV and speaking to witnesses to try and understand exactly what happened.

 “But I would urge anyone who might have seen anything to please contact us immediately.

 “We know this boy was in the shopping centre with a group of other boys before they went outside where he sadly fell.

 “If you remember anything from that evening, no matter how small, I implore you to get in touch.”

 Anyone with any information should call police on 0161 856 7525 quoting incident number 2045 of 28 October 2017.
