At the time a Bovis Homes spokesman said: “We are deeply saddened by this tragic incident involving an employee of one of our sub-contractors.

"Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the person involved."

It is the second death on the site after a worker died there in 2017 when he was struck by an object.

He was later named by the HSE as 30-year-old Christinel Osolos.
