Man Dies Falling into Grain Silo

July 11, 2014

An investigation is ongoing after a 22-year-old man died falling into a grain silo at Larchwood Foods on Hall Farm in Fincham, Norfalk, England July 9.

Seven fire and rescue crews were called to the scene Wednesday morning. The man, whose name has not been released, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police confirmed that the man’s death was not being treated as suspicious.

Larchwood Foods is a family-run business owned by the Mason family, which has been farming in and around Fincham for more than 200 years. The company produces rapeseed wheat and sugar beet, and last year invested in state-of-the-art oil seed processing and bottling facilities alongside its storage barns, dryers, and offices.
