Tributes have flooded in for a popular Disley teenager who was killed in a factory accident in Chinley on Tuesday.
Ben Pallier-Singleton, 19, was on a night shift at Vinyl Compounds Ltd when the stacker truck he was driving tipped over and crushed him.
The Health and Safety Executive is now investigating the incident, which happened in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
Since Ben’s death, many of his friends have taken to Facebook to pay tribute to the former Disley Primary and Chapel-en-le-Frith High School pupil.
Emily Smith said: “Ben Singleton you are the funniest person I have ever met, constantly putting a smile across my family’s face. We will all miss you soooooo much, sending love to you and your family. Rest in peace.”
Jamie Gray added: “Rest in peace Ben. Such a a shock to everyone at work. Can’t believe it. I will remember the times we had at school, you will be missed by many. You were such a nice lad, thoughts go out to the family. Sleep tight mate.”
And James Sparkes said: “I can’t believe what’s happened. Such a good honest lad. Always keeping everyone’s sprits up. You will truly be missed. Rest in peace buddy.”
Ben was very close to his family, who have been left utterly devastated at the loss of their “perfect son and brother.”
His sister Sophie Pallier-Singleton, 15, said: “My beautiful, gorgeous, talented brother. You were taken way too young and things will never be the same. I love you so much and I just wish you were sat here with me now making me laugh and smile like always. My best friend, soul mate, big brother and more. I love you to the moon and back, please never forget me and I won’t ever break our promise.”
No date has yet been set for Ben’s funeral.
