Fish and Chips go up in smoke
Following a fire in a fish and chip shop in Brighton last year the owner has been fined £21,000 for failing to comply with fire safety regulations.
According to local reports she pleaded guilty to six offences under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. Brighton Magistrates Court heard how the property had no emergency lighting, had only one domestic smoke alarm, which was faulty and staff had not been provided with any training on what to do in the event of a fire.
These defects could have been identified and, more importantly, the fire and subsequent damage may have been prevented if the owner had carried out a simple fire risk assessment.
Many small businesses and occupiers of premises do not realise what they are obliged to do to comply with the law and to keep their premises and staff safe from fire.
