We will never be able to come to terms with our devastating loss, say the families of four friends who died at a buidling site in Great Yarmouth in 2011.
The statement was released by the families of Daniel Hazelton, 30, Thomas Hazelton, 26, Adam Taylor, 28 and Peter Johnson, 42, today after the coroner recorded a verdict of accidental death.
The four friends died in January 2011 after a steel cage they were working in collapsed.
They had been constructing a reinforced concrete base as part of a £1.5m pressure test facility at Claxton Engineering, North River Road.
The joint statement said: “We will never be able to come to terms with our devastating loss; four men went to work that day and never came home again.
“The evidence clearly showed that Dan, Tom, Peter and Adam were conscientious and skilled workers and no concerns were raised about the steel work they were doing.

“We hope the Heath and Safety Executive will take appropriate action against those responsible so justice is done, and that lessons will be learned to ensure such a terrible tragedy never happens again.
“We would like to thank those who tried to rescue the men and for all the support we’ve received over the last three years.”
