Firm fined pounds 160,000 over worker's death
Tuesday 20 April 1993
The court was told how a 'catalogue of errors' two years ago led to 3,300 volts passing through William Kerr, 25, of Greenford, Middlesex. Sparks came from his hands as he died in a 70-metre deep tunnel under Park Lane when other workers moved a mobile electrical transformer and air-compressor. J Murphy & Son, of Highgate Road, north London, admitted two charges under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.
