A FARM business has been fined after a labourer was left with brain and spinal injuries when he fell while putting up a farm building.
Eden Veg Limited, of King Cup Farm, Willets Lane, Denham, Buckinghamshire, had commissioned a new grain store from a Portuguese supplier.
Due to the pandemic, the supplier had been unable to travel to the UK to put up the building - so the farm business decided to use its employees to build the barn themselves.
One of the employees, 34-year-old Florin Morariu, fell from height while helping to install profiled metal cladding to the roof of the steel-framed farm building.
