Firm must pay £2,200 over illegal scaffolding after lorry crash in Willenhall | Express & Star

A company has been ordered to pay more than £2,000 after a lorry crashed into scaffolding outside a Walsall pub which the firm did not have permission to put up.

Beech Scaffolding Services Ltd was prosecuted at Wolverhampton Magistrates’ Court yesterday and ordered to pay a total of £2,268.66, after pleading guilty to erecting scaffolding on a highway without a permit from Walsall Council, and contrary to section 169 of the Highways Act 1980.

The court heard that on September, 19, 2018 an articulated lorry was driving along the New Road, Willenhall, due to an emergency diversion and as it turned a corner, it crashed with the protruding scaffolding, damaging the vehicle.
