A HSE spokesman said: "HSE is aware of the incident and a joint investigation with Cheshire Constabulary is underway."

A spokesman for 3D Scaffolding described Michael's death as an 'accident' and said they could not comment further on the exact circumstances due to an 'ongoing investigation'.

Michael used to run The Queens pub in Tyldesley, Wigan, where he hosted a number of up-and-coming bands and received many tributes from musicians for his support over the years.

She added: "He lived and breathed for for his two girls, Katie and Abbie.

"He spent 18 years with their mum Kirsty and met his soul mate Janine, six months ago. They had only just moved in together two weeks ago as well."

Jake Breeze, frontman of one of the bands he supported during his time running The Queens Pub also paid tribute to Michael who always supported his career, describing him as a 'friend and mentor'.

He said: "I want to start by saying that without Michael Harrison, pretty much every local band in our area would have had nowhere to play.

"Mike cared more about giving young bands a paid gig than he ever was about having a tribute band in every Friday and Saturday to keep the regulars happy.

Jake added: "No matter how many times we told him he would never have to pay entry or buy a beer at one of our shows, he always made a point of paying in, helping us pack down, and spending the whole gig on the front row in merch he’d bought.

"I could write a book about how much I admired Mike, and how much of an impact he had on my life, and so many others.

"Every scene has someone like Michael Harrison, but we all had the real deal.

"Mike was a father, a friend, and a mentor. A true working class hero, that will be sorely missed."
