Christmas delivery driver killed by his own van

A man delivering Christmas parcels in Gloucestershire has died after being found trapped under his van.

The 36 year old man was found unconscious under his van in a country lane in Harescombe yesterday evening. Police are appealing for anyone who saw the white Nissan van in the area yesterday.

Paramedics attended after several members of the public contacted the emergency services, but the man died on the scene.

Our thoughts are with the family and friends of this young man, no less so because at this time of the year everyone is thinking about their family and spending time together over the Christmas period.

This is a very tragic incident and I would appeal to anyone who can help, with any information, however small they feel it may be, to contact us.
