An investigation has been launched after a man died in an industrial incident at a Hull building.

Humberside Police said the man was thought to have been working in an area around the lifts in Queens House, Paragon Street, “when an incident occurred which resulted in the man sustaining fatal injuries,” yesterday afternoon.

Humberside Fire and Rescue, Yorkshire Ambulance Service and the police all attended the scene, and an area around Queens House was initially closed off so that the emergency services could deal with the incident.

The police are working with Hull City Council in order to establish the circumstances of the man’s death, and said the Health and Safety Executive have been made aware of the incident.
