Schoolboy killed after falling through farm roof

A Moray farming partnership was yesterday (25 August 2010) fined £13,500 at Elgin Sheriff Court following an incident where a 13-year-old boy fell through the roof of a farm building and sustained serious injuries from which he later died.

The incident happened on 21 August 2006. Austin Irvine, who was the stepson of the farm’s junior partner, was watching the gutter in the valley between the cattle shed and feed passage roofs being cleared.
