A statement to members from Camgrain chairman John Latham said: “It is with great sadness I have to inform you that our long standing site manager, valued colleague and friend, Edward Orlopp, tragically lost his life in an incident at our Linton site.
“We are doing everything we can to support Edward’s family and colleagues at this very difficult and distressing time.”
Police were called to the Cambridge Road site at about 5.30pm yesterday.
The site was closed overnight.
