Elizabeth Dudley-Jones successfully prosecuted T and A Textiles Limited under the Fire Safety Order 2005

Elizabeth Dudley-Jones successfully prosecuted T and A Textiles Limited for numerous serious breaches under the Fire Safety Order 2005. The breaches occurred at the Company's substantial Newton Heath premises known as Sleepdown Mill, a factory which housed a substantial number of cardboard boxes containing flammable items as bedding, towels and hosiery. Fire Officers also discovered  a number of illegal immigrants hiding in the boxes in the premises and in the event of a fire, these vulnerable people would not have been accounted for.

Instructed by Miss Jenni Seex at Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Authority.
