Industrial accident at work kills man

A man has died in an industrial accident at work in Dunmow, Essex.

The worker, who has not yet been named, was killed when sheets of metal fell from height onto him, and trapped him underneath in the process.

Police and paramedics were called to Boddintons Electrical Ltd, situated on the the Chelmsford Road Industrial Estate on Wednesday evening. However, the man was declared dead at the scene. The accident at work has not been put down to any suspicious circumstances.

The ambulance crew arrived within six minutes of being called at 5.13pm, but declared the man dead at 5.30pm.

Boddingtons Electrical Ltd will now be investigated by the Health and Safety Executive, who will look into their practices and to why the accident occurred in the first place.

The company closed for the week following the incident, and are due to re-open on Monday.
