Roof fall lands Leicestershire firm in court
A Leicestershire roofing company has been fined after a worker was injured when he fell more than five metres through a fragile roof light.
Leicester Magistrates’ Court heard that on 11 October 2013, a sub-contractor working for K & DE Barnett and Sons was lifting a roof sheet from a stack on top of a loading bay canopy at a warehouse in Green Bank, Melton Mowbray.
The 29-year-old Blaby man, who has asked not to be named, overbalanced and stepped on to the roof light. It shattered and he plummeted to the concrete floor below.5th April 2014 2:17 pm
