Worker loses toes
Around the corner, around the world
The consortium which built the Queensferry Crossing has been fined £10,000 over a botched heavy lifting operation which resulted in a worker being seriously injured. A crane mat came crashing down on to the foot of 49-year-old slinger Desmond Flett, resulting in him having five toes amputated. The heavy load flattened the steel toe-cap of Mr Flett’s boot.
