A 60-year-old Portslade man has died after he was crushed by a bulldozer while working on a Sussex beach.
Michael Streeter, of St Nicholas Road, Portslade, was working for the Environment Agency, shifting shingle on the beach at Selsey, West Sussex.
A colleague raised the alarm just before 7am and Mr Streeter managed to speak to the emergency services despite being trapped by the bulldozer.
Police, fire and ambulance crews went to West Sands Caravan Park, Selsey.
A spokesman for the South East Coast Ambulance Service said that Mr Streeter, who had freed himself, was thought to have suffered a heart attack brought on by his injuries.
He was taken to St Richard’s Hospital, Chichester, where he was pronounced dead.
