Man's hands caught in 35-ton power press at Cumbrian factory - court

Packaging firm Smurfit Kappa Ltd entered a guilty plea before a judge to a charge of failing to ensure the safety of its employees.

At Carlisle Crown Court, the firm’s lawyers entered a guilty plea to a single charge.

It arose out of an incident at the firm’s premises in Hensingham, Whitehaven on September 14, 2010.

An earlier hearing was told how a 23-year-old employee got his hands caught in a 35-ton power press.

The case was brought by the Health & Safety Executive following an investigation.

Sentence in the case was adjourned until March 21.
