Gofundme page launched to help Swansea family

A man who died at Tata's Port Talbot steelworks has been named locally.

Justin Day, was 44, and from Llansamlet.

He died yesterday in what South Wales Police described as "an isolated incident".

He worked for Caerphilly-based Mii Engineering.

His family has issued the following tribute: “Justin was a family man who loved his family so much, he was a hardworking to provide the best for his family.

“He was a doting dad to his daughter Keeley and granddaughter Lyla-Jay, who he idolised.

“He was a passionate rugby fan and supported the Ospreys and Wales and had been looking forward to the world cup.

“He was so proud of his sons Korey and Kaylan and enjoyed watching them playing rugby. Korey plays for Vardre youth and Kaylan for Bonymaen U13s.

“He will be missed so much by his family.”

The circumstances of his death are still under investigation with support from the Health and Safety Executive.

Family friend Donna Jones has set up a Gofundme page.

On the page, she said: "Zoe and her family are the most amazing people I’ve ever met, so kind and would do anything for anyone.

"Justin tragically passed away in his work place in an awful accident. I know Zoe would never ask anyone for any help at all but would help anyone.

"Please spare anything you can for her and her family to help them through this tough time. Money will never replace their loss but will most definitely help them to keep a roof over their heads and help towards the funeral costs.

"I’m keeping the family updated everyday on all of your generous donations and will be withdrawing the money at some point in the next few weeks and delivering every single penny to Zoe and her beautiful family."
