A man who died after an industrial incident in a Norfolk village has been identified.
Emergency services were called to a business in Upgate Road, Seething, near Loddon, on Friday afternoon, after a man in his 30s was injured by an agricultural machine.
It was later revealed he had died at the scene. Police confirmed that a formal identification had taken place and the next of kin informed.
However a spokesman said the man, who is believed to be from the Eye area of Suffolk, will not be named until an inquest is opened. The man’s death is not being treated as suspicious and a post-mortem has revealed that he died from asphyxiation as a result of compression to the chest.
Norfolk Police and the Health and Safety Executive are continuing to investigate.
