Leeds waste firm fined £760,000

A Leeds Waste management company was fined £760,000 and ordered to pay costs of £16,170 after workers suffered multiple fractures. A metal grating failed as an employee walked over it. He fell four metres and sustained a double break to the left leg, a break to the right leg and a broken ankle. An agency worker came to assist him, but he also fell through the missing floor panel and sustained a dislocated and fractured shoulder.
