Inquiry after man's death at Denbigh company

North Wales Police are investigating the death of a man at a plant and machinery supplier in Denbigh.

Kenneth Cooke, 62, from Pentre Llanrhaedr, near Denbigh, died after sustaining serious injuries at Sanders Machinery Limited on Monday morning.

Denbighshire Council is also investigating the circumstances of the death.

North east Wales coroner John Gittins is opening an inquest into the death.

The council said environmental health officers and police were called to Sanders Machinery on Monday following reports of a fatal accident.

A spokeswoman said: "To date, the subsequent investigation into the incident has resulted in two prohibition notices being issued by environmental health officers to prevent the use of oxy-fuel cutting equipment and dismantling divided wheels on the site until any risk to health has been addressed.

"Investigations are still ongoing."
