Arla has expressed its sadness after a worker died at its dairy in Aston Clinton.

The man in his late thirties was rushed to Stoke Mandeville Hospital yesterday afternoon after a ‘non-production’ incident but sadly was later pronounced dead.

An Arla spokesman said: “It is with sadness that we can confirm that there has been a non-production fatality involving one of our colleagues at our Aylesbury site.

“Out of respect to our colleague’s family and friends, we cannot comment any further at this stage. Our thoughts are with the family at this difficult time.”

A police spokesman added: “We were called at 11.58 yesterday, to a fear for welfare at a premises on College Road North, Aston Clinton.

“A man in his late thirties was taken to hospital by Paramedics to Stoke Mandeville hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

“Investigating officers are not treating the death as suspicious at this stage, and a file is being prepared for the coroner.”

Buckinghamshire Coroner’s Office confirmed that it is aware of the death.

They also confirmed that an inquest will be heard into the man’s death in due course.

Inquests are heard in in the UK when a death occurs suddenly or unnaturally.
