Construction companies fined £700,000

Two companies have been fined a total of £700,000 and a director has received a suspended prison sentence following the fatal crushing of four workers on a Norfolk excavation site, in January 2011.  The men were constructing a large steel structure, as part of a foundation, which collapsed onto them.  A Health and Safety Executive (HSE) investigation found serious flaws in the planning, management and monitoring of this complex project.
