Brewery fined after asbestos exposure

A Cornish brewery has been fined after workmen refurbishing a Dartmoor pub were left exposed to asbestos.

The incident happened at the Three Crowns pub in Chagford, Devon, in January 2010.

The workmen discovered the asbestos when demolishing walls and were instructed to remove it without adequate protection.

St Austell Brewery was fined £5,000 by Exeter magistrates for breaching Control of Asbestos Regulations. Building contractor Cowley’s Building and Maintenance Ltd of Colyton, Devon, and its director Christopher Reed were also prosecuted.
