Ambulances and fire engines rushed to the man’s aid at 8.30pm on Saturday evening.

He suffered head injuries and was taken to hospital by paramedics.

A spokesman for Merseyrail told the Globe he had tripped while getting off the train at Leasowe and fell down the gap between the train and the platform.
