Farmer dies after being ‘struck by a tractor’

A farmer has died following an incident with a tractor at Wragmire Bank Farm, Cumwhinton at around 9am on Thursday (January 26).

 

The 57-year-old from Penrith, Cumbria was pronounced dead at the scene.

 

He has been named locally as Stephen Richard Toppin.

 

It came only days before a farmer was left with serious injuries after his tractor plunged into a ditch on a countryside road.

 

 

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has confirmed it is investigating.

 

A HSE spokesman said: “We were informed by the police at 10.15am on Thursday.

“We will be leading the investigation into this incident but as it is at an early stage, we cannot comment further.”
