The accident occurred when a  steel vacuum lifter, which weighed two thirds of a tonne,  was knocked from its mounting by a trailed being towed out of the factory. The steel vacuum lifter fell three and a half meters landing on top of the factory worker resulting in his death. 

Following an investigation by the Health and Safety Executive it exposed serious safety breaches by the company. The factory admitted to two breaches of Health and Safety legislation and was fined £100,000.00.  This death and loss to a family avoided could have been avoided if basic safety precaution had been followed.
