A contractor has died in an 'industrial accident' at a Jaguar Land Rover plant in Solihull

The air ambulance was called out to the scene at the factory in Solihull but nothing could be done to save the victim, who has not yet been named.

The man had been injured and was in cardiac arrest when the ambulance crews arrived at the Lode Lane site at around 3pm on Sunday. Staff at the factory tried giving the man CPR before paramedics arrived to take over.

The case has now been passed to the Health and Safety Executive and the Coroner to establish the cause of the incident.

Chloe Haynes, spokesman for Jaguar Land Rover, said: “We are deeply saddened to hear about the death of one of our contractors. Our thoughts are with his family.

“We are fully co-operating with the investigation.”

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The ambulance service arrived to find Jaguar Land Rover staff administering CPR.

“Ambulance staff and the medics took over but sadly, despite the best efforts of everyone on scene, nothing could be done to save him and he was confirmed dead a short time later.”

A spokesman for West Midlands Police said: “A man has died in an industrial accident at Jaguar Land Rover.”
