Dustcart dangers resurface after death

January 2nd 1970
A homeless man in the Ardwick area of Manchester has died after being tipped into a dustcart. He climbed into the bin to escape the cold and was unable to shout a warning before being tipped into the lorry on 25th November. Greater Manchester Police say the 31-year-old died of asphyxiation, crushed in the lorry. This happens every year to readers who seek shelter in bins and skips, although it usual only results in injury. Staff * Last year we talked to a major waste management company about a campaign to explain the dangers to our readership, and we'll reopen the dialogue with this death. In the meantime, warn any you know who've used bins for shelter.
