A fatal accident enquiry into the death of a bakery forklift driver started last week. Glasgow's Sheriff's Court will investigate the causes behind the death of agency driver Graham Meldrum in 2005. He was killed by a truck's tail-lift as he unloaded bread at the Allied Bakeries factory in Balmore industrial estate, Lambhill.
Last November, Allied was fined £19,500, after admitting three health and safety breaches. TNT Logistics, which supplied the vehicle, was fined £14,000 after admitting a single breach. Meldrum's family and colleagues then campaigned for a full enquiry, which was granted last year. Family and friends held a vigil outside the courthouse as the enquiry got under way.
