Donald Williams's widow criticises £200,000 Airbus fine

The widow of an Airbus employee killed at work has criticised the £200,000 fine given to the company.

Donald Williams, 62, from Buckley, was crushed while attaching a fertiliser spreader to a tractor at the manufacturer's Broughton factory in Flintshire in November 2011.

Mold Crown Court was told Airbus must also pay £58,891 in costs after admitting a health and safety breach.

Sheila Williams said the fine and bad publicity does not "amount to much in exchange for a man's life."

Matthew Richards reports.
