A 12-year-old boy has been rushed to hospital after he fell from the top of a two-storey stairwell at a school.

The first year pupil at St Andrew’s and St Bride’s High in East Kilbride, Scotland, has been treated for multiple injuries.

It’s thought he suffered arm, back, shoulder and head injuries.

He is believed to have fallen through the centre of the stairway on Thursday.

A pupil told BBC Scotland the boy had been attempting to slide down the handrail.

A spokesman for South Lanarkshire Council said: "We can confirm that a pupil was taken to hospital for treatment after the accident and is recovering well.

"A health and safety review is taking place."

The Sun Online has contacted the school for comment.
