We can confirm that the third person involved in the incident has now sadly passed away as a result of their injuries.


Cheshire police continue to work alongside our partners at the Health and Safety Executive, Local Authority and Building Control to establish the full circumstances of the incident.


David Webb, 43, originally from Northampton, but living in St Neots with his partner, is the third man who sadly died when the crane collapsed. His family have paid tribute to him.


They said: "Dave died from doing a job that he loved and was very passionate about.

"Dave was a fun loving character who lived his life to the full. He was known for his large personality and sung his way through life.

"He will be sadly missed by his partner Nathalie, children Maisy and Charlie, his mum Jenny, his sister Julie, his brother Mark, their families and his many friends. It's a heartbreaking time for the family as we lost Dave's beloved Father Alan six days before Dave passed away."
