Cleaner killed in machinery named
A cleaner killed in an accident at a meat processing plant has been named.

Lynda Trebilcock, 53, of Heelands, Buckinghamshire, was killed at the Delico plant, in Tattenhoe, Milton Keynes, in the early hours of Saturday.

Delico chief executive Bernard Hoggarth said: "This is horrendous for her family and for everyone who was working at the factory at the time."

A spokeswoman for the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) said it had started an investigation into the accident.

'No foul play'

Mr Hoggarth added: "It is such a tragic incident; we have never experienced anything like it.

"The machine was not a slicer, it does not have blades and there were no exposed parts."

A police spokesman said: "An investigation was launched which concluded that there had been no foul play and the death has now been passed to the Heath and Safety Executive (HSE) to investigate."

An inquest into the death is due to open this week.
