Storyline

The south tower of a new shopping centre collapsed resulting in the deaths of eight people. Was this a tragic accident or the responsibility of site agent Joe Carney? The prosecution allege that Carney objected to the "socialist" design and expense of the tower and was determined to see it fail with disastrous consequences. Carney does not deny that he disliked the building but denies he was in any way at fault. He argues that the building collapsed because of faults in a new material which he had warned against but his complaints had gone unheeded. Written by Alan Briscoe
