A 37-year old man has died after a steel unit apparently fell while being lifted by a crane, police have said.

The man, from Barrow, was taken to Furness General Hospital with severe head injuries and later died.

A second man, aged 31, was also injured and has been taken to hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

Cumbria Police said an investigation had begun.

Two Health and Safety Executive inspectors have visited the site and have started an inquiry.
