Vigil for worker killed at Berkeley site

Safety campaigners held a vigil last Friday for a construction worker killed at the Camden Goods Yard site in north London.

Berkeley Group company St George is developing the 600+ new homes site where the fatality occurred.

The Enquirer understands the victim was hit by an asphalt paving lorry.

Construction union Unite and campaigners from the London Hazards Centre staged the vigil after news of the incident emerged.

A St George spokesperson told the Camden New Journal: “A fatal accident occurred outside our site on May 24. Staff onsite rushed to help the victim but were unable to do so. Our deepest condolences go to the victim’s family and friends. We are assisting the police with their enquiries into the accident.”

A HSE spokesperson said: “We are aware of the incident and are jointly undertaking enquiries with the Metropolitan Police Service.”

The Met Police said: “Police and ambulance service were called at around 4.30pm on May 24 to Juniper Crescent, NW1, following an accident on a construction site. A man was sadly pronounced dead at the scene. Investigations are ongoing and the relevant authorities informed. Officers are supporting the man’s family. There has been no arrest.”
