Liverpool SolFed on the tragedy at Sonae

Tue, 14/12/2010 - 00:00

Below is the text of a letter sent by our local to the Liverpool Echo following the recent tragic deaths at the Sonae industrial plant. An edited version of the letter was printed in the newspaper on December 14th 2010.

I would like to express my condolences to the family and friends of the two workers, Thomas Elmer and James Bibby, who died following an accident at the Sonae factory in Kirkby.
It is tragic that, in this day and age, workers still risk losing their lives while simply doing their jobs.
It's not the first time Sonae has been in the news for all the wrong reasons. In the past there have been fires, chemical leaks and environmental concerns expressed by local residents.
I hope that, sooner rather than later, Sonae stops posing a risk to the people working there and those living nearby once and for all.
