Turriff firm admits safety failings in Inverness accident

A transport company has admitted safety failures which led to the death of an employee at an Inverness grain depot.

Andrew Harrald, 33, from Ardross, was buried under tons of animal feed being tipped from his lorry at the Longman Industrial Estate in February 2011.

Inverness Sheriff Court heard on Tuesday that it was the second time an employee of Turriff-based Transpan Scotland Ltd had died in this way.

The firm has pleaded guilty to breaching health and safety rules.

Sentence was deferred until next month.
