Oven man death ‘suspicious’
THE death of a man who was found inside an industrial oven at a tyre factory is being treated as suspicious by police.
George Falder ( left), 48, from Carlisle, was pronounced dead at the scene at Pirelli Ltd in Carlisle on Sunday night.
Det Ch Insp Mike Forrester of Cumbria Police said a post-mortem ruled out “any assault” prior to his death but spoke of “suspicious circumstances”, adding that the police were investigating how long Mr Falder was inside the ‘Autoclave’, which reaches temperatures of 150C and works on steam to re-tread tyres.
He said: “This is a really really unusual set of events and unusual circumstances.
“The only way for the family to get closure is to find out what took place.”
