A friend has paid tribute to a man who died in an accident at a garage in Upwell.
David Nelson, who was in his 40s, was pronounced dead at the scene of the incident on Tuesday morning.
Friend Duncan Lawton, who lives in Outwell, said his memory would live on in the village.
“Never knew the man long enough, but his life lives on in his fantastic kids,” he said.
“He was a fantastic man, engineer, no such thing as ‘we cannot do that’.
