The family of a man who tragically died in an incident at Hinkley Point C have paid tribute to him as a ‘great friend’ and ‘loving father’.

Father-of-four Jason Waring, 48, is thought to have been crushed to death by machinery at the Somerset construction site on November 13.

Most of Hinkley Point C, the new power station due to open by 2027, has been closed since the tragedy.

Mr Waring’s wife, Sarah, has paid tribute to him following his death.

She said: ‘Jason was a devoted and loving father who did everything for me, his sons and his daughters.

‘He was also a great friend, very loyal to many, and was always the life and soul of the party.

‘We will miss him terribly.’

Jason’s niece, Courtney Waring, posted a photo of herself with the site supervisor, writing: ‘Life and soul of the party. Funny, kind and one of the greatest men I knew. You made a massive impact to everyone who knew you. RIP Uncle Jason.’

Friends and wellwishers have now raised more than £86,000 for Mr Waring’s devastated family.

Staff at Hinkley Point C have also been offered support through EDF and Bylor.

Mr Waring began working at the Hinkley Point C project in 2018 with Bylor, the main contractor working on the project.

Project Director, Chris Wilkinson, paid tribute to Mr Waring. He said: ‘Since joining the team, Jason had become a much respected and well-liked member of the team.

‘He was an excellent supervisor, and his colleagues will remember him fondly as someone who was fun to spend time with.

‘The whole team is shocked and upset by his death, our thoughts are with his family and friends at this extremely difficult time.’

One of his close friends, Luke McGrew, said: ‘Jason tragically lost his life at work. He worked hard to provide for his family and always had a good sense of humour and was liked by many people across the project with his northern wit.

‘Could we all donate generously to help the family in these hard circumstances.’

The megaproject - one of Europe's biggest construction jobs with around 8,500 workers - is owned by energy company EDF and is estimated to cost around £26billion

Another friend, Craig Shutt, wrote in a tribute: ‘RIP my friend you really was a true gentleman.

‘Really loved the years we worked together and we never had a dull moment together always had our stories to tell each other. Keep on smiling up there like you always said and done.’

Nigel Cann, delivery director at Hinkley Point C, said: ‘We are very sad to confirm that one of our team was involved in a fatal construction traffic incident on Sunday during planned work activities.

‘The incident is being investigated by the police and the Health and Safety Executive and we will co-operate fully with the authorities.

‘Work at the site has been stood down and we are offering support to colleagues affected by this tragic event. Our thoughts are with his family, friends, and colleagues at this very difficult time.’

A spokesperson for Avon and Somerset Police said: ‘Officers continue to liaise with the Office for Nuclear Regulation and enquiries into the man’s death, which isn’t currently being treated as suspicious, are ongoing.

‘Our thoughts remain with the man’s family at this sad time.’

Hinkley Point C is expected to start generating electricity in 2026. Hinkley Point A, the first nuclear power station at the site on the north Somerset coast, stopped operating in 2000 and is being decommissioned.

Hinkley Point B began operating in 1976 and stopped generating electricity at the beginning of August this year.
