TWO construction workers who died after a crane collapsed were named by police yesterday.

David Newall, 36, from Bradford, and Rhys Barker, 18, from Castleford, died after the crane collapsed at the building site in Crewe, Cheshire, on Wednesday, said Cheshire Police.

Both men had been working at the site on Dunwoody Way and died at the scene.

A 45-year-old man from Glossop remains in a stable condition at Royal Stoke Hospital.

A force spokesman said post-mortem examinations showed both men died from crush injuries.

Police are carrying out an investigation alongside the Health and Safety Executive.

A parent and child in a house damaged by the falling crane were taken to hospital for a check-up as a precaution but were not injured, North West Ambulance Service said.
