She added: “A man in his mid 20s had been reported injured while working with concrete. “Despite attempts to revive him, the man was declared dead at the scene. “Next of kin have been informed.

The Health and Safety Executive[2] have been informed.” Police declined to comment on how the victim suffered his injuries. Local councillor Edward Foley told the Wimbledon Guardian[3] as he passed the building site: “There’s a tent covering maybe a body, and a skip lorry.

It looks more serious than expected, sadly.

“It could be a concrete mixer lorry.

Difficult to stop or look, but so sad.”
