Safe disgrace


A building boss was described as 'disgraceful' by a judge last week after he was found guilty of forging papers to say safety checks had been carried out after asbestos had been removed.

Christopher Jarnell, director of Leigh-based TW Insulation, forged air test certificates after the firm had stripped out asbestos during renovation work in Liverpool in 2001.

TW Insulation and Mr Jarnell pleaded guilty to breaching health and safety regulations and were fined £15,000 and £3,000 respectively by Liverpool magistrates.
