A man suffered a broken hip and wrist after he was struck by a trolley at a Marks and Spencer store.

The 60-year-old is critically ill in hospital after suffering further health complications in the wake of the incident, which took place in The Glades in Bromley on December 22.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman added: “It is understood that the man, aged 60, was struck with a trolley after being pushed by a woman.

“He fell to the ground and sustained injuries including a broken hip and wrist, and was taken to a Kent hospital for treatment.

“On Wednesday, December 26, officers were informed that the man had suffered further health complications and that he was now in a critical condition.

“Inquiries continue led by officers from Bromley borough police.”

An M&S spokesman said: “We can confirm that an incident took place at our Bromley store on Saturday, December 22.

“We are assisting the police with their investigation and therefore it would not be appropriate for us to comment any further.”

A 30-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm and bailed to return to a south London police station on January 29.
