Trench death


A Polish worker drowned at a house extension job in Wembley, north London, on Friday when he fell into a foundation trench.

Peter Juszczyz, 21, had been employed to work for just one day as a labourer.

A joint investigation is being carried out by the Health and Safety Executive and CID.
