An Upper Hutt man injured his head after falling off his roof this afternoon.

The man, in his 50s, was working on his roof in Whitemans Valley when he fell two metres to the ground at around 1pm.

Life Flight Rescue Helicopter picked up the man from a paddock next to his home.

The man was treated by the helicopter paramedic, before being flown to Wellington Hospital emergency department to receive further treatment for moderate injuries.

He had lacerations to the back of the head, and it was not clear whether he had further injuries to the spine, said crewman Logan Taylor.
