A 62-YEAR-OLD man is fighting for his life after falling from the roof of a bungalow.

It is believed the man had been working on the property near Thirsk town centre when he lost balance and fell about 12ft at 11.50am today.

He was treated at the scene for severe head injuries by a Great North Air Ambulance doctor and paramedic and a Yorkshire Ambulance Service crew before being flown in a stable condition to the major trauma unit at James Cook University Hospital, Middlesbrough.
