A worker cleaning the roof of the Prime Minister’s house in Brisbane has been seriously injured in a fall.

Police say the man was cleaning leaves from the roof just after midday when he slipped and fell several metres to the ground.

He was taken to hospital by ambulance but authorities are not yet revealing the extent of his injuries.

WorkCover Queensland is investigating the accident.

A spokesman for the Prime Minister says Mr Rudd and his family are concerned for the injured worker.

“This morning there was a terrible accident involving a tradesman cleaning the gutters at the Rudd family house in Brisbane,” he said.

“Following the accident an ambulance was called and the tradesman involved is now receiving medical treatment in a Brisbane hospital.

“This was a serious accident and as is appropriate both the Queensland Police and WorkCover Queensland were immediately notified.”
