A Devon abattoir has been fined nearly half a million pounds after a security guard was seriously injured while on duty.
The 63-year-old security guard, who was working for an independent security company, was on duty at the gated entrance of the Dunbia (UK) abattoir at Hatherleigh, near Okehampton, Devon early on the morning of November 29, 2018.
Her duties included operating the gates to allow delivery vehicles to enter and exit the site.
She was holding the gate open to let a vehicle towing a trailer leave the site, when she was hit by it.
