A man has suffered head injuries after falling from a crane on a building site in Poole.
The ambulance service said the workman fell 4ft (1.2m) from the equipment in St Aldhelms Road.
Firefighters used a ladder to bring him down from scaffolding. He was then taken to hospital for treatment.
The A35 Poole Road, between County Gates Gyratory and Redlands Roundabout, was closed for a time but reopened less than an hour later.
Dorset Police also advised motorists to stay away from the area due to the "industrial incident".
