Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

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.”
