    A 60-year-old man is in a critical condition in hospital after being injured in a suspected trolley rage incident at a Marks & Spencer store.


    The man, who has not been named, was struck by a trolley while in the M&S store at The Glades shopping centre in Bromley.



    Local newspaper reports claim the man was hit by a trolley being pushed by a woman, and sustained injuries including a broken hip and wrist.

    So he was struck by a trolley and now he's got a cold?

    Edit: Seriously, what illness do you get from being hit by a trolley? Is this like the fire at Sea Parks?

    I bet the M&S prices contributed more than the trolley.

      You have no idea the mortality (death rate) associated with a broken hip.
      Its relatively high.
      10-14% of patients with broken 'hips' die within a month of being admitted.

      But what illness has he got? Unless the broken hip caused an infection.
