Issue No. 1761

SAFETY campaigners protested in Canary Wharf, east London, last week at the seventh death of a construction worker in the area. On Wednesday of last week a 44 year old man from Northern Ireland was decapitated while working on the DS8 building at the commerce centre. Two of his workmates were left deeply traumatised.

A tower is under construction at the site for global finance company Citigroup. The following day a worker on an adjacent site suffered an electric shock and was rushed to hospital with 60 percent burns.

The next day another worker was taken to hospital with an injured shoulder after yet another accident.
