A MAN suffered serious hand injuries when he became trapped in a machine.
The 31-year-old maintenance engineer's hand was caught in a roller press used by paper merchants S Sheard and Son, of Solar Works, at Calder Street, West Vale.
Colleagues rushed to help after the accident at 10.40am yesterday and dismantled the machine. Elland firefighters then prised the rest of it off his hand.
The injured man, from Queensbury, was taken to the Calderdale Royal Hospital.
No-one at the firm wanted to comment, but confirmed a Health and Safety Executive investigation would be held.
