A FATHER watched in horror last week as his 24-year-old son was crushed to death while he was teaching him to drive a bulldozer.
Northumbrian police named the dead man as Russell Graham, from Gateshead.
The tragedy happened while work was being carried out on a demolition project in Stobswood, near Ashington.
It is understood Mr Graham's father was employed by Northumberland firm Cramer Plant but it is unclear whether his son was employed at the site.
The tragedy is believed to have happened when Russell fell after his clothing got caught.
