Scottish power fined after electricity cable death

The death of a young man who spent his last moments warning motorists about a live electricity cable has prompted the prosecution of a power company.

HSE has taken action against Scottish Power UK plc after 20-year-old Simon Lines, from Prees, was killed in Shropshire on 2 January 2007. The energy provider was fined £130,000 and ordered to pay £48,000 costs at Shrewsbury Crown Court today.
