Thurston: Goldstar Transport left “shocked” by death of driver Paul Nodding

09:30 04 February 2014

A lorry driver’s death has left his employers “shocked” as details were released about the Suffolk man who died at a Toyota plant in Derbyshire.

Paul Nodding, from Ryefields, Thurston, worked for Felixstowe haulage company Goldstar Transport, which also has a logistics centre based at Woolpit.

The 56-year-old is understood to have died after becoming trapped between two lorries at Toyota’s vehicle manufacturing plant in Burnaston, a village south of Derby, in the early hours of January 22.

Matthew Ashworth, Goldstar’s managing director, said: “Paul’s death has shocked all that are involved with the job we do for Toyota.

“Our thoughts are with Paul’s family at this terrible time.

“We are co-operating with all the organisations involved.”

Assistant coroner Louise Pinder, of the Derby coroner’s office, opened Mr Nodding’s inquest late last week. The full inquest has been adjourned until a later date.

An inquiry involving the Health and Safety Executive and Derbyshire police is looking into Mr Nodding’s death, but police have said it is not being treated as suspicious.

A statement from Toyota said: “The driver was visiting the site in order to deliver a container of parts and to collect an empty container to return to Felixstowe.

“It was whilst making this delivery/collection that the accident occurred.”
