Scaffolding firm prosecuted for dangerous installation

A roofer was seriously injured after plunging almost six metres when a scaffolding platform in Bridlington collapsed.

Local self-employed contractor Stephen Martin fell from the roofline of a domestic two-storey property on St Aiden Road, in Bridlington, on 17 April 2009 when the scaffold beneath him swung open like a trapdoor.
