Worker shatters leg in telehandler plunge

An East Riding farm company was today fined £3,000 for misusing a telehandler and allowing a worker to plunge three metres from an unsafe grain bucket.

The long-standing employee, who does not wish to be identified, was clearing guttering on a farm building at Bainton Heights Farm, Bainton, on 14 May 2008 when the incident occurred, switching from a ladder to a telehandler to access a hard to reach section.
