Flintshire firms fined £120,000 for toxic chemical leaks

Two former Flintshire chemical firms are fined £120,000 for toxic chemical leaks that left workers seriously ill.

Archimica Chemicals admitted six health and safety charges while Euticals admitted two charges brought by Natural Resources Wales.

Euticals took over the Sandycroft site from Archimica but Mold Crown Court heard that both firms have gone bust.

As Rob Thomas reports, one worker was left with brain damage as a result of exposure to chemicals at the plant.
