A 31-year-old man suffered injuries to his head and ankles when he fell from a window on Newbiggin in Malton.

Police cordoned off the road on Monday at 8pm while they spoke to witnesses to establish what had happened.

The cordon was lifted after two hours once officers were satisfied that there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding the incident.

The man was taken to York Hospital for treatment - although his injuries are not believed to be life threatening.
