Andrew Henderson, Glasgow LawyerThompsons Solicitors, Scotland’s leading health and safety law firm, has long campaigned for improvements to the countries Fatal Accident Inquiry system. No case highlights deficiencies in the current system more than the tragic sinking of the Flying Phantom. The tug boat sank in the river Clyde in December 2007 and 3 crew members lost their lives. But as yet there has still been no FAI into these tragic circumstances. The Crown Office mounted a criminal prosecution of the boat’s owners and the port authority Clydeport over what they said were breaches of Health and Safety Law. As Clydeport went to the High Court in Edinburgh to plead guilty to the charges against them, Andrew Henderson, a partner with Thompsons who represented the families of the men spoke to BBC online about the case and the need for urgent reform of the FAI system.
