Probe after man crushed to death

An investigation is under way after a man died and another was left with serious injuries after apparently being crushed by a floating pontoon.

Emergency services were called to Cliff Road at Ipswich docks just before 6pm on Friday night to reports that two men were being crushed by what appeared to be a section of floating pontoon, Suffolk Police said.

One man was pronounced dead at the scene and a second was taken by ambulance to Ipswich Hospital, a spokeswoman said.

She said: "The Health and Safety Executive has been informed and police will be carrying out a joint inquiry with the HSE to establish what has happened."
