A MAN who died after an industrial incident in a village has been identified.

Emergency services were called to a business in Upgate Road, Seething in Norfolk on Friday afternoon after a man in his 30s, believed to be from Eye, was injured by an agricultural machine.

It was later revealed he had died at the scene.

Police confirmed that a formal identification had taken place and the next of kin had been informed.

However a spokesman said the man will not be named until an inquest is opened.

The man’s death is not being treated as suspicious and a post mortem has revealed that he died from asphyxiation as a result of compression to the chest.

Norfolk Police and the Health and Safety Executive are continuing to investigate.
