Exchange Place One where Martin Greig survived a 40ft fall

A Penicuik window cleaner who survived a 40ft fall from the fourth floor of an Edinburgh building says his ordeal was “like a big dream”.

Martin Greig (25) was working at the Semple Street Exchange 1 building when the ropes securing him to the property both gave way.

The young father is now recovering at home after breaking both wrists and suffering three compression fractures in his back. Both his ankles are badly sprained.

Martin told the Advertiser: “My lines snapped – my working line and then my back-up line. I fell to the ground.”

Full story in this week’s Advertiser. On sale now.
