Oil firm Shell has been issued with an improvement notice after an incident on a North Sea platform led to a partial downmanning of workers.

It happened on the Nelson installation in March.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) said Shell failed to ensure that a flexible hose assembly, related to a gas turbine, was maintained in good repair.

The company was given until the end of June to make changes.

A Shell spokesman said: “We are working towards the action requirements of the improvement notice.”
