Thurston/Felixstowe: Lorry driver who died at Derbyshire Toyota plant named as Paul Nodding from Ryefields
A Suffolk lorry driver who died in an industrial accident at a Toyota plant in Derbyshire has been named.
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.
The tragedy occurred at around 12.40am on January 22.
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 is currently under way involving the Health and Safety Executive and Derbyshire police into the circumstances surrounding Mr Nodding’s death.
