A construction worker has died after scaffolding collapsed at the site of a new Jurys Inn hotel in Milton Keynes.
John Robinson, 49, died on Friday (14 April) from injuries sustained when the 15 floors of scaffolding from the new 279-bedroom hotel crumpled.
Robinson's family said in a statement: "John was a family man and leaves a widow, three children and six grandchildren."
Two other men were rescued from the rubble and are in a stable condition in a local hospital.
|A further 200 staff escaped serious injury, although around 20 were treated for minor injuries. The hotel was due to be completed this summer and a spokesman for Jurys Inn-owner Jurys Doyle](http://www.caterersearch.com/Companies/33809/Jurys+Doyle+Hotel+Group+PLC.htm) said they had yet to work out how much of a delay will be caused. The scaffolding failed at 12.30pm on Tuesday (11 April), when most of the workers from the Irish construction firm McAleer and Rushe were on their lunch breaks. Builders had completed 10 floors out of 15 of the hotel. High winds were initially blamed for the collapse but a major accident investigation has now been started by the [Health & Safety Executive](http://www.hse.gov.uk/ ).||![Jurys-Scaffolding-200x301.jpg](https://cdn.filestackcontent.com/aCs2TdNTH2nLA6w685Yw) *Image:* *Rex Features*|
