A 25-year-old woman has died while working at stables owned by Michael Owen.
The ex-Liverpool football player owns the Manor House Stables in Maplas, Cheshire.
A woman working at the site suddenly fell ill and collapsed at 8.50am this morning, police say.
She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Manor House Stables Twitter feed has posted a message paying tribute to the ‘much-valued’ woman.
The tweet reads: ‘It is with deep sadness that we have to announce that a much-valued member of our team died at work this morning.
‘The family have been informed and both the family and the team at Manor House request privacy at this time.’
A file will be prepared for the coroner.
Manor House Stables is a purpose-built training facility created by Owen and his family.
It has been the base for trainer Hugo Palmer since last spring.
Owen, 43, a former England footballer who played for Liverpool, Real Madrid, Newcastle United, Manchester United and Stoke City, set up the stables in 2006.
The likes of Wayne Rooney have previously kept horses at the facility.
