The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) have launched an investigation into an accident which left a teenage boy trapped in museum farm equipment for several hours.
The 19-year-old was rushed to hospital with serious foot injuries after the incident which involved a tractor at the Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse Museum.
He has not yet been able to return to work.
A spokesperson for the HSE confirmed that they had been notified of the accident and were sending an inspector to the museum to investigate what exactly happened.
Norfolk County Council have also started carrying out their own investigation which they say will last two weeks.
A spokesperson said: “The results of the investigation will be used to ensure that the risk control measures in place across the authority continue to be appropriate and consistent with best practice.”
