A worker has been killed at a Jaguar Land Rover factory.
Merseyside Police launched a joint investigation with the Health and Safety Executive last night following the fatal incident at a plant in Halewood, Merseyside.
Officers were called to the factory by paramedics shortly after 8pm. On arrival, they found a local man in his late 40s being treated for serious injuries.
The man was taken to Whiston Hospital for emergency treatment but was pronounced dead at around 10.30pm.
A police spokesman said: "The scene was cordoned off and an investigation into how the victim, who was a worker at the site, was fatally injured is now under way.
"No-one else was injured during the incident.
"Merseyside Police and the HSE are treating the death as unexplained."
A post-mortem examination will be carried out to establish a cause of death, police added.
