A teenager has been taken to hospital after falling from a building at Tonedale Mill.

The accident comes just days after police issued a warning after four youths were spotted climbing the main tower at the derelict site.

Emergency services were called around 5pm on Sunday to reports a teenager was injured.

The girl remains in hospital, but is not believed to be in a life-threatening condition.

A spokesperson for Avon and Somerset Police said: We were called at approximately 5.35pm to support the fire service and paramedics on Sunday August 9 following reports of a teenager being injured in a fall at a disused industrial unit in Wellington.

"She remains in hospital, but the injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

"The Health and Safety Executive has been made aware of the incident.

"We'd like to remind people that entering derelict buildings puts them at an increased risk of harm.

"More police patrols will be carried out in the area to help keep people safe."

A spokesperson for South Western Ambulance Service said: "We were called on Sunday at 4.45pm about an incident at a site in the Tonedale area of Wellington.

"The caller reported to us that someone had fallen at this location.

"Our land and air crews responded to a female teenager at the scene. They treated and conveyed her to hospital by air ambulance for further care."

Somerset West and Taunton Council has been at odds with the owners of Grade II* listed Tonedale Mill, for years.

It has served multiple works notices on Mancraft Ltd to improve issues such as security at the building.

A spokesperson for SWT said: “SWT has ongoing concerns about site security which we have continually drawn to the attention of the owners of the site Mancraft Ltd, the latest communication being on Friday (August 7) prior to the accident. These serious concerns formed part of the S215 and Enforcement Notices which were served by the council in 2019, and the three repairs notices served in June this year.

"SWT officers met with Mancraft Limited representatives on Monday August 10 to demand they address site security as a matter of urgency and fully comply with their statutory health and safety obligations.

"We continue to investigate all statutory options to safeguard the future of the site.”

In June earlier this year, the council revealed intentions to carry out a Compulsory Purchase Order of the buildings if works are not carried out soon.
