The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) will take no further action over an incident that left a teenage apprentice trapped in farm machinery at a rural life museum for four hours.

The 19 year old, who was on a lottery-funded project to help preserve traditional rural skills, has not yet returned to work at the Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse, near Dereham, after firefighters cut him out of the tractor equipment on October 18.

The HSE announced an inspector would visit the site and investigate what happened.

A Norfolk Council Council spokesman said: “Following a visit to the Gressenhall site last week an HSE inspector has agreed with the county council’s own conclusions that there were no management failures that contributed towards the incident and will be taking no further action.

“The county council will be using the lessons learnt from the incident to emphasise to staff the importance of complying with training and instructions in order to avoid accidents and injury.”

She added that the teenager would hopefully return to the museum soon.
