Man fatally crushed at engineering firm

A man has been killed in an accident at the factory of a Sheffield engineering firm.

The 28-year-old worker, who has not been named, was crushed on Tuesday while unloading equipment at the DavyMarkham factory in Darnall.

It is understood the man died after he became trapped between the protective roll-cage of a forklift truck and the top of a metal container in which he was working.

The Health and Safety Executive and South Yorkshire Police are investigating.
