AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - A construction worker was killed at BP's Rotterdam refinery after a wall collapsed on him, a spokesman for the oil major said on Wednesday.

The man, who was working for an external contractor, was hit after a piece of the wall fell from a crane.

The BP spokesman said the accident did not affect the running of the refinery, which is the second largest in Europe and processes around 386,000 barrels per day (bpd) of crude oil. (Reporting by Harro ten Wolde)
