A MAN was rushed to hospital this morning after falling from the Clackmannanshire Bridge.

Emergency services raced to the bridge at around 5.30am and closed it after numerous reports of a male entering the water after stopping the car he was in.

In attendance at the early morning incident were a number of police vehicles as well as an ambulance, paramedic unit and special operations team.

A male was then taken to the Forth Valley Royal Hospital.

According to Travel Scotland, the bridge reopened at 7.20am with traffic unaffected before the morning rush-hour.

The Advertiser understands the man survived the fall, although his condition is currently unknown.
