Westley was a contract clock winder, employed by the company to maintain the clocks in its possession. By an error, and no fault of his own, he was killed whilst attending his duties in the old Goods Shed.
A rake of goods wagons had been shunted from Minffordd down to Port, and were intended for the harbour. However, due to the points being incorrectly set, they deviated and ended on the line running into the Good shed. Fifty five wagons entered the goods shed at a low speed, but the momentum pushed the wagons already there through the wall at the other end. Westley was crushed.
