Five HS2 workers injured in incident

Inspectors from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) are today (Tuesday 29 August) at the site of an incident where five HS2 workers were injured.

Work is underway to identify the cause following the incident at the Mandeville Road site next to Northolt Tube station in London, on Saturday 26 August. Emergency services responded.

Four people involved in the incident have been discharged from hospital while one worker remains in hospital.

HSE inspector Gordon Nixon said: “We are working with all parties involved. At the moment, we are making initial enquiries. If there will be a full HSE investigation, this will take time.”
