A Yorkshire roofing company has been fined and its sole director given a suspended prison sentence after a dad-of-two was killed when he fell 12 metres through a skylight.

The worker, who was a subcontractor for Wakefield-based Davis Industrial Roofing Limited, was replacing 300 skylights on a storm-damaged warehouse roof when he fell.

An investigation by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) found Davis Industrial Roofing Limited had failed to provide an appropriate risk assessment, method statement, and suitable and sufficient fall protection measures for the roof work to be carried out safely.
