Man dies in animal feed accident

A man has died after he became trapped under a pile of animal feed at the back of his lorry.

Friday morning, the emergency services were called to the premises of farm feed company Harbro in Inverness, UK and freed Kenneth Bissett and attempts were made to revive him. But the Harbro driver was later pronounced dead at Raigmore Hospital.

A spokesman for Northern Constabulary said: "Upon arrival it was established that a 56-year-old man had been freed from a pile of animal feed at the rear end of his lorry. "Attempts were made to resuscitate the man and he was subsequently taken to Raigmore Hospital's accident and emergency department. "Sadly the man was pronounced dead after arrival." Harbro commercial director George Menson said it was unclear exactly how the accident had happened. He said: "We do not know too much at this stage. Obviously there has been an accident and it is being investigated."
