A construction worker from Wiltshire has died at a Maidenhead building site.
South Central Ambulance Service has confirmed a 'man in his 20s' died after an industrial incident at the construction site in West Street.
The ambulance service was called at 12.09pm following reports a man had been seriously injured at the site. It dispatched two rapid response vehicles along with an ambulance crew.
The Thames Valley and Chiltern Air Ambulance landed in Kidwells Park to assist the paramedics.
Both the ambulance and air ambulance services confirmed that the man, who police say is from Wiltshire, died at the scene.
A hotel is being built on the site.
A spokesman for McAleer and Rushe, the company building the hotel, said: "We are shocked by this tragic death. It would be inappropriate to say anything further at this stage."
The Health and Safety Executive has been notified.
West Street was closed to traffic but has since reopened.
