A worker was injured when a Christmas tree fell on them at a hotel.

A member of staff at the Grove Hotel sustained minor injuries when putting up The Grove’s Christmas tree last Wednesday afternoon.

An ambulance, a rapid response vehicle and Essex and Herts Air Ambulance were called to Chandlers Cross in Rickmansworth shortly after the incident and the worker was taken to The Royal London Hospital.

A Grove Spokesperson said: “The safety and wellbeing of both our staff and guests is of utmost importance to us, so we will be investigating the incident to prevent similar accidents in future.”
