Roofer sentenced after workers’ lives put at risk

A roofer has appeared in court after four of his employees were spotted balancing dangerously on a barn roof in Cheshire.

Joseph Jones, 61, was prosecuted by HSE after an inspector visited Norley Bank Farm, on Cow Lane in Norley, on 23 February 2009. He found Mr Jones giving instructions to the men, who were working approximately four metres above the ground, while they refurbished the roof.
