Storyline

Stanley Roberts was electrocuted and killed when his crane touched cables; a young boy who rushed to help him was also killed in the incident. A postmortem showed that Roberts had drunk alcohol beforehand. His employer Albert Hunter is now charged with health and safety offences. The prosecution assert that Hunter knew that Roberts was an alcoholic but took no proper action to stop him working. His widow says she wrote to Hunter about her husband's drinking and also says he used to hit her. However the defence maintain that there was no evidence that Roberts was ever drunk at work and they took reasonable measures to ensure he was a safe employee. Written by Alan Briscoe
