Braintree: No further action taken after accident on petrol station forecourt
3:00pm Monday 19th August 2013 in News
No further action is being taken after a mum was struck on the head with a piece of stray metal on a petrol station forecourt.
Alison McAiney suffered head injuries when the metal fell from the roof of the Texaco petrol station, off Galley’s Corner, in Braintree, in June after being clipped by a lorry.
The mother-of-two, of Benton Close, Cressing, was taken by ambulance to Broomfield Hospital, Chelmsford, where doctors said the cut was so deep they could see her skull.
It was glued and secured with butterfly stitches.
At the time, Braintree Council said it was the responsibility of Co-op, which owns and operates the site, to report the incident so that, if appropriate, its health and safety officer could investigate.
Last Monday, a council spokesman confirmed: “The incident was reported by the company and has been investigated.
“No further action is to be taken by the council.”
