In June 2016, Monavon Construction Limited were fined after a plywood hoarding collapsed killing two men. Belinda Liversedge, of the British Safety Council, reported that the “London construction firm has been fined £550,000 for the corporate manslaughter of two young men who died when they fell 3.75m down an uncovered hole into a concrete basement below.” The firm was sentenced on two counts of corporate manslaughter and one health and safety offence. Judge Paul Worsley QC stated that failures were “criminally negligent in every sense of that expression.”
