We can confirm with great sadness that our colleague, Adam Donaldson, who was working for a contractor, lost his life at Harden Quarry in Northumberland yesterday morning (7 October). Our thoughts are with Adam’s family, friends and colleagues. We are cooperating fully with the authorities and supporting the Health and Safety Executive with their investigations.
Members of our senior management team will remain at the site over the coming days. They will support our employees there, and work alongside them, and the authorities, to understand what happened so that we can learn from this tragic event.
