From Construction News:

A worker injured at Westfield’s Stratford City development in east London last week, has died.

Shaun Scurry died a week after the incident on 9 December. London Ambulance was called to Westfield Stratford last Wednesday where, a spokeswoman said, they had reports a man was unconscious.

A statement from his employer Firesafe Installations said: “Shaun Scurry’s employer, Firesafe Installations, and all his colleagues were shocked by the accident and injuries he sustained on December 9 when working on the Westfield Stratford City construction site, and are now deeply saddened to learn of his subsequent death. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family. Investigations into the cause are ongoing, both by the HSE and the company.”

A Westfield spokeswoman added: “A full investigation is already underway by the Health and Safety Executive and we are assisting them with their enquiries.

“Westfield would like to express its sincerest sympathies to the family at this very sad time.”
