A SCAFFOLDING company boss will be sentenced tomorrow for breaching health and safety laws after Swindon man Jamie Mines lost his limbs following an electrical shock while working for it.

When Jonathon Griffiths-Clack, of Sambourne Road, in Minety, appeared before Swindon Magistrates Court last month he admitted the health and safety breach.

He also pleaded guilty on behalf of Boundary Scaffolding - the company that had employed 33-year-old Jamie at the time of the accident.

The court heard on December 19 last year Jamie was working at height, building a temporary shelter at Boundary Scaffolding’s unit on Kendrick Trading Estate.

It was while Jamie was holding a tin sheet to make the roof that it came into contact with overhead power lines.

As a result of the injuries he received, the young dad had to have his right leg, both hands and his left foot amputated.

He has since had to have his one remaining limb – his left leg – amputated as well.

The case was brought by the Health and Safety Executive following an investigation into the incident.

Griffiths-Clack, 44, said at the earlier hearing that he was extremely remorseful for what had happened.

District Judge Anthony Callaway adjourned the case until tomorrow for sentencing.
