Investigation launched after Suffolk farm death

Police and the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) are investigating after the death of a man on a farm premises in north Suffolk.

Neville Bloss, 53, from the Stradbroke area of Suffolk, was last night named as the man who died at the site, in Darsham.

Officers were initially contacted at about 6.40pm on Monday after a report that a man had collapsed at the farm.

A spokesman for Suffolk police said: 'Ambulance personnel and police officers attended, and attempts were made by both to resuscitate the man, however he was pronounced dead at the scene.

'It was initially thought the death was due to natural causes and, as standard procedure with any sudden death, a post-mortem examination was carried out.
