Football Fan Hurt In Fall

A football fan is recovering in hospital after suffering a fractured skull when he fell 15ft from a railing at a match.

The man, in his early 20s, was at Leicester City's 3-0 victory away to Scunthorpe.

A spokesman for Humberside Police said:

"He was on his own, nobody pushed him, it seems to be an accident.

"The man, who is from Leicester, is believed to have tried to stand on a railing, and fell 15ft into an exit way.''

A hospital spokesman last night said he was in a "comfortable" condition.
