A founding member of the Electric Light Orchestra band has been killed in a freak accident when a giant bale of hay crushed his van

Mike Edwards was driving along the side of a steep field when the 94 stone (600kg) bale careered down, smashed through a hedge and landed on the roof of his vehicle. The 62-year-old, who played cello with the 1970s group, is thought to have swerved into a similar vehicle as he was struck by the bale. The second driver was unhurt in the collision, police said. The accident happened at around 12.30pm on Friday on the A381 between Harbetonford and Halwell in Devon
