Death prompts telehandler warning

Workers are being warned not to operate telehandlers if the right-hand side window is missing or broken, following a fatal incident.

A 36-year-old man was apparently leaning through the broken window aperture when he was crushed by the descending boom. It is the third such fatal accident in the last seven years.
