The inquest of a Lowestoft man involved in an industrial accident in Guernsey has been adjourned again – five years since his death.

Health and safety prosecutions are still under way following the death of Barry Challen. 

The 50-year-old was left in a critical condition after suffering head injuries while working as part of a team of contractors fitting new refrigeration units at a Co-op store. 

His family travelled from Lowestoft to be at his side during treatment at the Princess Elizabeth Hospital on the Channel Island following the accident on May 20, 2018.

At a review hearing at Norfolk Coroner's Court on Thursday, May 25, senior coroner for Norfolk Jacqueline Lake said a further review would take place on Thursday, July 27. 

Following the accident flowers appeared outside the shop with tributes from his wife, children and other family members. 

His sister-in-law Kay Carlisle described it as a "very tragic accident".
