ELO cellist's death ruled accidental
Wednesday 16 March 2011
A founding member of the Electric Light Orchestra died when a 63-stone bale of silage rolled 200 feet down a field and landed on his moving car in Devon.
Michael Edwards, 62, the band's former cellist, died instantly in the incident last September.
An inquest jury in Plymouth returned a verdict of accidental death yesterday, despite an independent expert and a Health and Safety Executive inspector casting doubt on how a contractor secured the bale to stop it from rolling towards the road.
