Tribute to man who died after a crane collapsed in Crewe


The family of a man who died in a crane incident in Crewe paid tribute to him.

David Newall, 36, from Bradford was one of two men who sadly died when their crane collapsed at a building site in Dunwoody Way on Wednesday 21 June 2017.

David’s family said:

David was an amazing Daddy, son, brother, uncle and friend. He touched the hearts of everyone who knew him because he would simply do anything for anyone and go above and beyond if he could help.

He was a devoted Daddy to his 3 children who will miss him terribly. As a family we would like to offer our thanks to all the emergency services involved on the night of this terrible tragedy and the continued support we have received in the days following.
