The inquest was due to open today (Friday, May 14) into the death of a man following an industrial incident in Bury St Edmunds as his family issued a tribute to him.
Police officers were called to the Weerts Group MV site, on the Suffolk Park industrial area, in Rougham Tower Avenue just before 3pm on Thursday, April 1, along with the fire and rescue service, ambulance service and a team from the Suffolk Accident Rescue Service. The Health and Safety Executive was also informed.
A man, aged in his 30s, sadly died in the incident at the scene.
Pending formal coroner’s inquest proceedings, police have provisionally identified the deceased as Harvinder Singh Kular (pictured above) aged 39, from Luton.
Mr Kular’s family issue the following tribute on their behalf:
“Harvinder’s death is a great loss to our family. He was a much loved son and brother who can never be replaced. Harvinder was a man who always had a smile on his face, he was hard working and always willing to help anyone. He will be greatly missed.”
Mr Kular’s death is being treated as unexplained at this stage. Officers from Suffolk police are working with colleagues from the Health and Safety Executive to establish the circumstances leading up to his death.
