West Midlands waste company Master Construction (Skips) Limited has been fined £225,000 after accepting a charge of corporate manslaughter.

A 29-year-old employee suffered fatal injuries after he became entangled in a trommel in January 2015.

He died of crush injuries to his head and upper chest, with the trommel described as being in a dilapidated state with unguarded moving parts and no emergency stops.

Director of the Master Construction (Skips), who was responsible for health and safety on the site, has been given a 12 month custodial sentence and ordered to undertake 300 hours of unpaid work.

He has been suspended from holding a directorship in a company for eight years.

Master Construction (Skips) is now in liquidation.
