The promoters of Britain's annual Reading festival have been fined for breaching health and safety rules.
On Thursday (08Oct09), a judge at the city's magistrate's court ruled that Reading Festivals Ltd failed to carry out a proper risk assessment and ensure its workers' safety after a crane ran into power lines at the event's site in 2006.
The company was ordered to pay a $6,000 (£4,000) penalty and cover the $32,650 (£21,769) legal fees for the case.
Festival organiser Melvin Benn was cleared of 18 counts of failing to ensure the safety of contractors.
It's nothing like the country vibe we were anticipating.
