The man - thought to be an electrician doing maintenance work rather than a customer - suffered an electric shock just before 3.30pm. The shop, in the Victoria Place shopping centre, was evacuated and closed, and the Kent air ambulance was called.

Why don't you rock down to Electric Avenue (Birmingham B6 7BU) And then we'll take you higher.

Tragic,

and quite probably preventable.

It's interesting (with my other hat on) that there's mention of South Coast Ambulance involvement but no suggestion (that i've read) that store staff took much action prior to their arrival,
M&S comments never mentioned "despite the best efforts of our store first aid team carrying out CPR etc" it was just "our thoughts are with" (

I read in the Times that the police are treating the death as suspicious.
