Post-mortem examinations are to be held later into the deaths of four men from Suffolk who died in an industrial accident in Norfolk.

Peter Johnson, 42, Thomas Hazelton, 26, Daniel Hazelton, 30, and Adam Taylor, 28, died when a steel structure collapsed at a firm in Great Yarmouth.

They were digging foundations for an extension at Claxton Engineering.

Three of the men were from Stanton near Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk and Adam Taylor was from nearby Rickinghall.

Villagers who held tributes in their honour said they were the best of friends, well known in the community and had grown up together.

A health and safety investigation has begun.

The Great Yarmouth-based company Claxton provides engineering services to the offshore drilling industry.

It was founded in 1985 and has offices in Aberdeen and Dubai.
