The director of three construction companies, two dissolved and one still active, has been handed an eight-month prison sentence and disqualified for seven years after his actions nearly resulted in the death of a worker. The 17-year-old employee was left with life-threatening injuries caused by a fireball ignited by burning waste and was off work for seven months.
National chain store Wilko Retail has been handed a £2.2m fine after a 20-year-old part-time worker was pinned underneath a roll cage full of paint tins while she was working at a store in Leicester in August 2013.
