A man had to be freed by fellow workers when a crane he was operating toppled in Auckland.

The crane, which had been used to shift timber on Orakei Wharf, fell over just after 8am on Tuesday, trapping the man inside.

Police say the crane has been cleared and the man was taken to hospital with moderate injuries.
