A teenage boy has died at a fair on the Kent coast.
Emergency services were called to Pencester Gardens in Dover in the early hours of Wednesday.
The site was hosting the Family Funfair run by Kent-based Forrest Amusements which, according to a poster, was due to open to the public on Wednesday.
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is investigating the circumstances of the incident, which Kent Police said were “not suspicious”.
A South East Coast Ambulance Service spokesperson said: “We were called at 7.42am this morning to a serious incident at Pencester Gardens in Dover.
“We immediately dispatched a number of clinical resources to the scene, including our Hart team and critical care paramedics; however, sadly, a teenage boy was pronounced as deceased at the scene.”
A Kent Police spokesman said no suspicious circumstances have been reported.
An HSE spokesperson said they are assisting emergency services with their response.
A spokesperson for Forrest Amusements declined to comment, but said the company would be issuing a statement later.
Its website says it was founded in 1889 and is the largest supplier of funfair attractions in the county.
A witness told the PA news agency that she had seen “three ambulances, a couple of fire trucks and some police vehicles along Pencester Road, which was blocked off.
“They were saying there had been a fatality, and the entrance to the fair had been cordoned off with tape.”
