A man who died at his workplace has prompted a criminal investigation, an inquest has heard.
David Nelson, 46, died at his place of work at AD Hurst and Son garage in Baptist Road, Upwell, near Wisbech, on July 4 last year. Police attended the garage and confirmed a man in his 40s was pronounced dead at the scene.
At the time of his death, police said Mr Nelson died after carrying out mechanical work on a vehicle.
At an inquest review in Norwich Coroner's Court this morning (Monday, January 7), area coroner Yvonne Blake said there were criminal proceedings related to this matter.
She said: 'This is a case where a gentleman was killed at work. Criminal proceedings are ongoing.'
The matter has been adjourned for another inquest review on Friday, February 1.
Ms Blake added: 'We will have some details but I believe there is a sentencing hearing.'
