Following Government guidelines, we have temporarily closed all of our offices and our staff are now all working from home using secure technologies to ensure they are able to continue to progress with existing and new cases as normal. All face to face meetings have been cancelled, however we are continuing to hold these meetings via phone and video calls.

We know these are uncertain and unsettling times for many of our clients, and the wider population, and things might look a little different for the foreseeable future. But our focus remains on our dedication, knowledge and strength that we provide to all our clients. We will continue to provide updates over the coming days and weeks in accordance with official guidelines and to keep everyone informed of the situation.

A mechanic has died after sustaining a serious head injury at work. Martyn Massie, 24, was injured at work by an explosion at Pitmachie Garage in Aberdeenshire on 18 June. Early reports suggest that an oil container exploded, and that Mr Massie was using cutting equipment at the time of the accident. Mr Massie was flown by air ambulance to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary after the incident, but later died on Saturday morning as a result of his injuries.

Janet Keith, who owns the garage with her husband Willie, said they were distraught at the death of Mr Massie, who had worked at the garage for seven years. “He was a great employee. It’s incredibly upsetting for us because he had been with us for a long time and we were very fond of him.”

A Health and Safety Executive inspector examined the scene of the accident. A spokeswoman for the agency has stated that they are working with Grampian Police and the investigation into the cause of the explosion was ongoing. Grampian Police have said that a report will be sent to the Procurator Fiscal.
