Three people were seriously injured today when fifteen stories of scaffolding collapsed at a new accommodation and hotel construction site in central Milton Keynes, England. Emergency services arrived at the scene within minutes of the collapse and at least two of the injured were taken off by air ambulance. Up to 200 workers are currently employed on the site but by good fortune, many were on their lunch break when the incident occurred; other than the three evacuated to hospital, others were treated at the scene for minor injuries. Both infra red cameras and tracker dogs were employed in the search for survivors. Officials have stated that all those at the scene have now been accounted for.
