Lancashire couple in court after repeated injuries

A Lancashire couple has been prosecuted after an employee was seriously injured twice in less than two months at a pine furniture workshop in Bacup.

Simon Davies, from Bacup, was cutting a small groove into a pine door on 13 July 2009 when it shot out of the machine, forcing his left hand onto a rotating blade. The 21-year-old’s index finger was badly cut, most of his nail was removed and the bone was broken.
