Unions in Liverpool will mark Workers Memorial Day on 28 April by laying a wreath at the place where a crane collapse killed a worker earlier this year.

Zbigniew Swirzynski died on 15 January when a jib crane failed on a David McLean site at Colquitt Street, Liverpool.

The memorial, organised by the T&G, will take place at 10.30am on 28 April, and will be one of several events across the country.

Ucatt will lay a wreath at the building workers memorial in Liverpool, and the Construction Safety Campaign is staging a march along the south bank of the Thames in London from the Tate Modern to Tower Hill.

Other trade bodies have organised religious services and memorial events in Manchester, Birmingham, Bradford, Nottingham and Chelmsford.

The Health and Safety Executive recently warned of a 10-15% rise in fatal accidents in construction this year.
