two men arrested after death at a skip hire firm

08 Oct 2012

An accident at a skip hire company in West Sussex has led to the arrest of two men on suspicion of manslaughter.

Lindsay Campbell suffered injuries when he fell around 30ft out of the bucket of an excavator.

The event took place on 25th July this year after he had been working at South Coast Skips on Rudford Industrial Estate.

The manslaughter is thought to be caused by gross negligence on the accused’s behalf.

Originally two men from Hampshire aged 26 and 62 were arrested and then later released on bail. On 7th September a 47 and 50 year old man were arrested on suspicion of the same offence and also bailed.

Detectives from Surrey and Sussex major crime team are investigating the case further, alongside the support of the health and safety executive.
