Two men were struck by a piece of lifting equipment as they worked on a Teesside industrial site.

The pair were working in an inspection pit at Imperial Tankers, Preston Farm Industrial Estate, Stockton.

Emergency services, including an air ambulance, were called but they were driven to hospital by ambulance. Their conditions are not known.

The Health and Safety Executive said it was making initial inquiries.

An Imperial Tankers spokesman said: "A colleague has gone to the hospital to offer any assistance that might be needed and the workers' families have been informed of the accident."

He said the company's health and safety team was at the site and carrying out an inquiry and would also work with external agencies to conduct a thorough investigation.
