"As you may have already seen there was an incident yesterday at our construction site on Dunwoody Way, in Crewe. I'm deeply saddened to say that following the incident involving the erection of a crane two people working on site have lost their lives, while a third remains injured in hospital. The crane also struck an adjacent house, the occupants were taken to hospital and have since been discharged.

On behalf of everyone at Seddon I'd like to offer my heartfelt condolences to the family and loved ones of those who so tragically lost their lives yesterday. Our thoughts and prayers are with everybody involved, and words cannot express how we feel.

At this time I cannot speculate as to the cause of this incident, but needless to say there will be a full investigation and Seddon is working closely with the emergency services and Health and Safety Executive.

We will provide further updates once more information becomes available."

Jonathan Seddon, Chief Executive, Seddon
