Crush fines

Two Welsh contractors have been fined a total of £54,900 after a steel erector was crushed to death by a half-tonne door which fell on him during installation work at Liverpool John Lennon Airport in August 2000. Primary Design and Build of Powys and Gareth Pugh, trading as Gareth Pugh Steel Framed Buildings of Powys, pleaded guilty to safety breaches at Liverpool Crown Court last week following the death of Ian Cavender.
