A man who died after a cherry-picker access platform crashed on to the M25 in Buckinghamshire has been named by a coroner as Richard Jaeger-Fozard.

It is believed the 29-year-old, who lived in Uxbridge, was killed when he fell 130ft (40m) onto the hard shoulder from the Kimberley Access Platforms depot on 5 June.

The depot foreman, from Manchester, was pronounced dead at the scene near Iver.

A Kimberly Group spokesman said he was a "highly qualified engineer".

Chairman Ray Ledger said: "He had several years' experience working in the sector."

An inquest was opened and adjourned on 18 June.
