A man and a woman were both grievously injured in separate falls during the night in Mellieha and Nadur.

According to a police statement, the 35-year-old Englishman fell down a set of stairs at a hotel in Triq il-Marfa, Mellieha at around 10pm.

A medical team was called on site, and later conveyed the man to Mater Dei hospital. Doctors determined that the man had suffered grievous injuries in the fall. 

In a second incident, Gozo police were called to Triq Girgor Buttigieg, Nadur, at around 12.30am, after a 36-year-old Italian woman fell about eight courses at a private residence, suffering grievous injuries in the process.

She was conveyed to Gozo General Hospital for treatment. 

Duty magistrate Joanna Vella Cuschieri has launched an inquiry into the latter incident and appointed various court experts to assist in the investigation.
