Wrexham company fined £250,000

A Wrexham coach company has been fined £250,000 and ordered to pay costs of £3,068 after it repeatedly failed to comply with legal notices to get its lifting equipment examined. An inspection, carried out in 2015. revealed overdue Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER) examinations on fourteen items. An improvement notice was served, and extended twice, and still resulted in a failure to comply. It was also noted that an improvement notice had been served on the company in 2011.
