The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is to prosecute a Norwich company after two employees died in an explosion.

Factory workers Daniel Timbers and Barry Joy were killed while working in the paint spray booth at the Harford Attachments factory on Spar Road on July 13, 2015.

An inquest in Norwich last year heard how Mr Timbers, 28, of Dereham Road, Norwich, and Mr Joy, 56, of Spencer Street, Norwich, died as a result of the effects of fire and inhalation of fumes of combustion.

The HSE is now prosecuting Harford Attachments Ltd under Section 2(1) of the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 and Regulation 6(4) of the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002.

The defendants are due to appear at Norwich Magistrates’ Court on May 31 2018.
