Milton fined

Construction products manufacturer Milton Pipes was fined £3,300 at Sittingbourne Magistrates' Court in Kent last week for safety breaches after an employee lost a finger. Richard Chapman lost the digit in a steel rod bending machine in November 2004.

His hand was caught on a rod and drawn through the unguarded mechanism.
