A construction worker killed at a building site in Berkshire last week has been named locally as Westbury man Benjamin Hugh Wylie.

The 24-year-old, who worked as a pump operator, was working on a hotel in Maidenhead when he was killed last Tuesday, in what is believed to be an industrial accident.

The Thames Valley and Chiltern Air Ambulance was called to the site at 12.09pm, where paramedics confirmed Mr Wylie had died at the scene.

An inquest into his death has been opened and adjourned by HM Coroner for Berkshire.
