In March a young mum was killed when a pallet of bricks fell on her from 70ft.

Kayla Boor, who had just got engaged, died days after the accident in Tower Hamlets in London.

The 29-year-old had just dropped off her son at the nearby St Paul’s and St Luke’s Church of England Primary School when she was hit by falling debris from a "building site crane."
