WARWICKSHIRE COUNTY, England — A local authority has been fined £30,000 for health and safety failures linked to a Midland warehouse blaze in which four firefighters died.
Mr Justice MacDuff said the fine imposed on Warwickshire County Council reflected deficiencies in record-keeping and information given to fire crews at the time of the tragedy in November 2007.
