Funerals for brothers who died in industrial accident

Hundreds of mourners have gathered in Suffolk for the funerals of two brothers who died in an industrial accident in Great Yarmouth.

Dan and Thomas Hazleton, aged 26 and 30, were among four men crushed by steel while digging foundations at Claxton Engineering on 21 January.

All four died of asphyxia due to trauma.

The funeral of the brothers took place at the village church in Stanton, near Bury St Edmunds.

They had been working with Peter Johnson, 42, also of Stanton, and Adam Taylor, 28, from nearby Rickinghall.

The men were creating foundations for an extension at Claxton, which provides engineering services to the offshore drilling industry.

The Health and Safety Executive continues to investigate the accident.
