    VICTIM BELIEVED TO HAVE BEEN CRUSHED BY VEHICLE AT DELGATY
    BY JOHN THOMSON

    Published: 29/03/2011

    A man died yesterday in an incident involving a forklift vehicle on a north-east farm.

    The victim of the accident at Woodside of Delgaty, near Turriff, was named locally as Neil Bremner, who is believed to be in his 30s.

    It is understood he had been working with potatoes in an outbuilding at the farm and was crushed when the forklift overturned.

    He is believed to have been employed at Woodside of Delgaty, which is farmed by Ian *****, in an arrangement with an agricultural machinery ring.

    Police said last night that exact details of the accident were still unclear and they were under investigation.

    Police and an ambulance were called to the farm, about a mile from Turriff, after the accident was reported at 11am.

    Callers were turned away during the day as the emergency services dealt with the incident.

    Mr Bremner, whose parents live near Auchterless, had been working at the farm for several weeks.

    An acquaintance, who asked not to be named, said: He went around the north-east from job to job on farms and I think he had been at Woodside since January.

    A police spokesman said last night: The Health and Safety Executive has been contacted and our inquiries are still going on.

    The death shocked residents in the Turriff area and one said: We saw a lot of activity and then heard about the accident. Its very sad.

    Turriff area councillor Sandy Duncan said: Its always a tragedy when something like this happens.

    I dont know what happened and Im sure there will be a full investigation carried out.

    My thoughts are with his family at a very distressing time like this.

    I'm sure I can speak for all of us here at HEF when I say that we're all sort of a family, not just on this site, but in the larger sense of all of us who work with and around heavy equipment, and it's always sorrowful and sobering to lose a family member for any reason, but even moreso in the course of our daily work.

    My condolences to all who knew him...

    I also offer my sympathy to the family.

    It is sobering to see the passing of one of the members of our extended family.

    My condolences to his family and friends. This leads me to a pet peeve of mine. Our jobs are generally dangerous, we know this. We also take shortcuts, or do things that we know we should not do. For what? A 150-300 a day? Gentlemen, stop and think about what you do every day, dont accept everything as its just the way things are done. Be safe, go home safe, see your friends and family. Yes, there are freak accidents, but if you look at the incidents in our business, there is usually something leads to an end like this
