Worker loses toes

The Sunday Post (Newcastle) - - OPINION -

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.
