Man killed on McAleer & Rushe Rose Bowl redevelopment

A worker has been fatally crushed by a concrete block on the redevelopment of the Hampshire Rose Bowl cricket ground.

Philip Carsley, 34, from north Yorkshire, is believed to have been struck by the block during lifting operations at the site, near Southampton.

Emergency services, including the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance, were called to the scene but were unable to revive him.

Northern Irish contractor McAleer & Rushe is the main contractor on the £48 million scheme.

Hampshire Police and the Health and Safety Executive have begun investigations into the incident.
