Cammell Laird management and staff have expressed their condolences after a man died yesterday while working at the Birkenhead shipyard.

The 26-year-old, from Birkenhead, was rushed to hospital but later died.

In a statement the firm’s managing director, Linton Roberts, said: "A man collapsed in the workshop yesterday while standing at a workbench.

“The safety first-aid team and colleagues provided support until the arrival of paramedics and ambulance services.

“The man was taken to hospital by ambulance but sadly died later.

"The company is satisfied this was not as a result of any form of accident at this stage and continues to provide support to the authorities.

"The company and its entire workforce send their condolences together with their thoughts and prayers for his family and friends at this most difficult time.”

A post mortem examination will be carried out on Monday to establish cause of death.

Wirral coroner's office has been informed.
