Emergency services at the scene.

The Health and Safety Executive is to lead an investigation into the death of a man at a vehicle recovery garage in Ripon on Friday, March 29.

An unnamed man in his 30s died at Macadam on Boroughbridge Road following what police described at the time as an “industrial accident”.

The victim was from the Darlington area.

Ambulance, air ambulance, fire and police were called at about 8am.

The Stray Ferret asked North Yorkshire Police today whether anyone had been arrested or charged.

The force issued a brief statement today which did not comment on this. It said:

“We are assisting the accident investigation lead by the Health and Safety Executive.”

The HSE, a non-departmental public body, is responsible for workplace safety in the UK.
