The family of a man who died while working at Hinkley Point C have paid tribute to a “great friend” and “loving father”.

Jason Waring, 48, died following an incident involving a piece of mobile plant machinery at the construction site in Somerset on November 13.

Following his tragic passing, Jason’s wife, Sarah, mourned the loss of her husband.

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.”

A fundraiser has been set up in his name and has raised £85,000 for the family.

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

Project director, Chris Wilkinson, also paid tribute to Mr Waring, adding: “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.”
