Lincoln construction company faces trial over worker’s death

A Lincoln-based construction company is to stand trial accused of breaching health and safety regulations following the death of a skip lorry driver.

Lindum Group Ltd appeared before Lincoln Crown Court on Monday, February 15 and denied a charge of failing in its duty to ensure the health and safety and welfare at work of its employees between September 1 and October 18, 2013.

The prosecution, brought by the Health and Safety Executive, comes after the death of Lincoln man Anthony Jackson, aged 66, following an incident at Gamston Airfield near Retford in October 2013.

Judge Michael Heath adjourned the hearing for trial on a date to be arranged.
