Oxford Coroner's Court rules an accidental death
An Oxford Coroner's Court has classed a forklift crushing an accidental death.
Wayne Riggall had been sent to collect large paper reels from a warehouse at Wyndeham printing factory in Bicester, Oxfordshire on 23 July last year.
But when a colleague checked on the 42-year-old a few minutes later, he was pinned underneath the forklift's cabin.
Oxford Coroner's Court heard he died of trauma consistent with crush injuries.
Riggall, from Banbury, had been working at the warehouse - which has since been renamed Walstead - since 2015 and drove a forklift fitted with clamps to pick up reels of paper, according to a report on the BBC
Concluding with a verdict of accidental death, senior coroner Darren Salter recorded that "while evidently related to the movement of large and heavy paper reels, the exact cause of the truck toppling cannot be determined".
