M&S jump man 'remains critical'
QUESTIONS are being asked as to how a man was able to jump from the roof of Marks & Spencer in Gloucester.
The man, believed to be in his 40s, plunged from the rooftop into Eastgate Street on Friday and suffered severe head injuries and multiple broken bones. He remains in a critical condition at Frenchay Hospital, in Bristol.
Eastgate Street was busy with shoppers at the time.
County councillor Pam Tracey (C, Westgate) said: "This must have come as a huge shock for so many people who were walking down Eastgate Street at the time.

"It begs the question how he managed to get up there."
One shopper, who did not wish to be named, said: "The man was lying on the floor but the police and ambulance hadn't arrived, so lots of people started to crowd around him.
"It is terrifying when you think about it. It also makes you wonder what could have happened if he had hit someone as they were walking by."
The man was rushed to Gloucestershire Royal Hospital but was later taken to Frenchay, which specialises in brain injuries. He remained there yesterday.
A spokesman for Gloucestershire police said: "There has been no change in his condition."
