Dear Health and Safety Executive,

Thank you for letting me know, I was led to believe that the HSE had the information based upon this newspaper story: https://www.newspapers.com/newspage/1396... where it said that the HSE started an investigation into Mr Kirk's death at the time.

Yours faithfully,

Mr Robbins
