The 30-year-old fell 10ft from the roof of a shop on Lowedges Road, Lowedges.

Police believe he fell in the early hours of Saturday but was not found until 2pm later that day.

He was discovered on the ground at the rear of the shop.

Officers want to speak to anyone who may have seen him before he fell.

A South Yorkshire Police spokesman said: “Officers were called to Lowedges Road in Sheffield at about 2pm on Saturday after reports that a man had been found with head injuries in an enclosed area at the rear of a row of shops.

“The 30-year-old local man was taken to Royal Hallamshire Hospital, where he remains in a serious but stable condition.
