A man died yesterday on a construction site at King Edward Quay near Colchester, Essex after a load reportedly dropped from a tower crane.
Details are still very vague, but the main contractor for the project – a student accommodation building for the University of Essex – JR Pickstock construction, said that the man was an employee of contractor Urban Summit.
Health & Safety Executive inspectors were on site yesterday to investigate. Police were also on site after the man was pronounced dead by paramedics.
