Man Dies At Portsmouth Scrapyard
A man has died after being hit by a piece of equipment attached to a crane at a scrapyard.
Police were called to the scene of the accident in Twyford Avenue, Portsmouth, Hampshire, at 12.12pm on Wednesday November the 21st in which a second man also suffered non life-threatening injuries.
A Hampshire police spokeswoman said that a post mortem examination would be carried out on the body of the 50-year-old to establish exactly how he died.
She said: ''The death is not being treated as suspicious at this time.
''Hampshire Constabulary is working with the Health and Safety Executive to investigate the circumstances surrounding the man's death.''
She added that the man's next-of-kin had been informed and the coroner had been notified of the death.
640 men were killed when the South African troop carrier was hit by a cargo ship in 1917.
The 79-year-old man suffered a serious head injury in the Cranmer Road car park in Winton.
