A man has fallen from the top floor inside Bullring in Birmingham with shoppers evacuated
A tent was put up around the man who fell from the third floor outside Topshop down to the first floor outside Debenhams, around 4pm on Saturday afternoon.

Security staff tended to the man along with police officers and three off-duty doctors before ambulance staff arrived. Additional medical support came with the landing of the air ambulance minutes later.
The man, believed to be 40 years old, was taken away by ambulance and remains in hospital. His condition is described as critical but stable.
The Bullring re-opened the first floor just over two hours later.
Elliott Marc Jones was in the shopping centre when it happened and spoke to Capital afterwards.
