Police investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of two men at Banham Poultry in Attleborough are awaiting results of post-mortem examinations.

Emergency services were called to the factory on Station Road at about 1.10am on Thursday, following reports two subcontractors from a pest control company working on the site had been found dead.

Police and the Health and Safety Executive have launched a joint investigation and are looking into a refrigeration gas leak in an effort to determine whether it has any link with the men’s deaths.

A police spokesman confirmed on Monday that the two men had not yet been formally identified and that investigators were waiting for the results of post-mortems.

The identities of the men are expected to be made public later this week.
