Keith Morton QC secures acquittal of BAM Construction Limited

11th January 2017

Keith Morton QC, instructed by Madeleine Abas of Osborn Abas Hunt, represented BAM Construction Limited at its trial for breaches of two alleged health and safety offences.

The prosecution arose out of a serious accident at the Milton Keynes Leisure Plaza construction site in August 2014. Following a month long trial the jury acquitted BAM Construction Limited. The judge, who had earlier withdrawn the second charge from the jury, directed a not guilty verdict on that count. The jury found the co-defendant guilty. They will be sentenced on 18 January 2017.
