An investigation has been launched after a worker died at a major film studio in Edinburgh.
The 30-year-old suffered fatal injuries following the incident involving a scissor lift at the First Stage Studios facility in Leith.
Emergency services rushed to the the former warehouse – partially owned by Jason Connery, son of Sir Sean – but the contractor was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police said there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding his death, but a probe is understood to be under way to determine exactly what happened.
A report has also been sent to the procurator fiscal.
A spokesperson for the force said: “Police were called around 2.20pm on Thursday, June 30 following the death of a 30-year-old man at an address on Bath Road, Edinburgh.
“Officers attended and there does not appear to be any suspicious circumstances surrounding the death.”
The former wave plant – which sits at the end of Edinburgh’s long-running tram extension project – was used as a filming location for ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ in 2017 before being officially converted into the production facility last year.
A spokesperson for the company said: “FirstStage Studios was devastated to learn of the tragic death of a contractor working for one of our production customers.
“We understand an investigation is under way so cannot comment further save to offer our condolences to the contractor’s family and colleagues.”
