FIREFIGHTERS tended to an injured elderly man last night, after coming across him in a busy street.

The man, in his mid 70s, had fallen while crossing Hatfield Road at around 7pm when firefighters from St Albans spotted him.

The crew were on their way back from routine home safety checks when they saw the injured man with his friend.

They pulled over and gave him first aid while they waited for paramedics to arrive.
