Teenager dies after pylon climb
A 19-year-old died when he was electrocuted while trying to climb an electricity pylon, police have said.

Ben Brunow, from Newbury in Berkshire, was found unconscious near the pylon at the rear of the town's Northcroft Leisure Centre on Saturday evening.

He was taken by air ambulance to hospital where he died shortly after.

A spokesman for Thames Valley Police said the death was not being treated as suspicious but that other youths had been in the area at the time.
