Gamekeeper shoots himself in the leg
2nd January 2013
... Comments

Whilst a gamekeeper was climbing a wall, he fell and his shotgun closed, releasing live cartridges into his leg. The gamekeeper claimed in court that his employers had failed to offer him proper training about needing to remove cartridges.

However, the Court ruled there was sufficient evidence to prove safety training had been given and that the employers were not in breach of their statutory duty.
