Builder thanks medical staff who saved his leg after accident

A builder from Lincolnshire says he's lucky to be alive after a garage he was demolishing collapsed on top of him.

Jake Weir from Spalding says he owes everything to the medical staff who treated him, especially those who helped to save his leg from being amputated.

Amazingly the moment the building fell down was captured on camera, because the customer who owned the garage was filming at the time. You may find some of the pictures in Kate Hemingway's report upsetting.
