ACCIDENT AT PARK GATE IRON & STEEL WORKS

I am members interests co-ordinator at Rotherham Family History Society and one of our members has asked me to place this on our mailing list to see if anyone can assist:

I was born Dorothy Cropper at 118 Psalters Lane, Rotherham to Dora [neeJowett] and Clifford Cropper on 31st May 1931.
On my Birth Certificate, my Father (born 1901) is named as a Testing Clerk at Park Gate Iron & Steel Works. I know he lost part of his leg in an accident at the works when he was about 17, apparently having been run over with a loco in the works. I am unable to find details of his accident either from local newspapers or locally.
I wonder if anyone could advise me where to search further?
