Detective inspector Simon Bromiley of the Lincolnshire police said: “The Health & Safety Executive has been informed of this incident and a joint investigation is underway. It is common practice for us to work together at the early stages of an industrial accident of this nature before deciding who will lead on it. At this stage the investigation is attempting to clarify exactly what happened and we will report our findings to Her Majesty’s Coroner."
