Work restarts on school after collapse

Contractor Kier will begin a “phased return” to work on the new primary school in Shropshire today following last Thursday’s collapse, which injured five workers.

Security was stepped up on site over the weekend and today the police are handing the incident area over to the Health and Safety Executive.

Five Kier employees were working on a section of steelwork on the front of the Abraham Darby Academy school building in Shropshire when it collapsed. The steelwork appears to have been part of a canopy on the front of the building.

All five persons injured in the collapse have now been released from hospital. Kier said it is fully co-operating with the investigation to find the cause of collapse.
