Published:  25 August, 2010

Two UK construction companies have been fined £125,000 after a worker fell 21 metres from a construction site roof.

Steven McColgan, 37, from Edinburgh, was working on the construction of the adult block of the RVI when part of an unsupported working platform broke away when he stood on it, causing him to fall 21 metres to the ground.

Mr McColgan suffered serious multiple injuries to his head and body in the fall and his injuries continue to be life-changing.
