Crane firm fined after four tonne weight crashed to ground near college students

A company has been fined after the hook broke off a tower crane and its four tonne load crashed 36 metres to the ground, narrowly missing a footpath.

The load – which was part of a building under construction on 3 November 2007 at Hertfordshire Regional College in Turnford, near Cheshunt – came down heavily beside part of the campus regularly used by students. The impact also demolished the site boundary fence and damaged a college building.
