A man has been arrested by Greater Manchester Police in connection with the death of a construction worker three years ago, on suspicion of gross negligence manslaughter.
Polish worker Jan Tobolski died when he was hit by a steel beam while working on a site in Lena Street, Piccadilly. He was working on the construction of the 23-storey Sarah Tower.
The site was shut down and the building never finished, with the developer behind the project subsequently going into administration.
A Greater Manchester Police statement said: “On August 1st 2007 police were called to Lena Street following reports of a works accident.
“Officers attended and discovered a Polish worker had died after he was struck with a steel beam.
“As part of a joint investigation between GMP and the Health and Safety Executive, a 32-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of gross negligence manslaughter.
“He has since been released without charge. A file has been passed to the Crown Prosecution Service. Inquiries are continuing.”
