A man has fractured his skull after falling 15ft (4.5m) from a railing at a football match between Scunthorpe United and Leicester City.

Police believe the incident at Glanford Park is not suspicious. A Humberside Police spokesman said: "He was on his own, nobody pushed him, and it seems to be an accident."

It is thought that the Leicester man, in his early 20s, was trying to stand on the railing when he fell into an exit way. He was taken to Scunthorpe General Hospital and his injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

A spokeswoman for the hospital said: "He is quite comfortable."
