Dunbartonshire.co.uk, UK: New calls for corporate killing law

Oil unions have called for the swift introduction of new corporate killing legislation following the publication of an inquiry into the deaths of two workers on a North Sea platform.

A fatal accident inquiry found that the deaths of Keith Moncrieff and Sean McCue could have been avoided if the company had properly dealt with a temporary repair on a leaking pipe.

Mr Moncrieff, 45, from Invergowrie, Dundee, and Mr McCue, 22, from Kennoway in Fife, died on a utility leg of the company’s Brent Bravo platform on September 11, 2003.
