A textile worker’s fingers were crushed in a yarn processing machine as she reached under the rollers.

The 59-year-old woman was left with lasting damage to her hands after her fingers were caught in the machinery.

Now the owners of the Ravensthorpe factory have been prosecuted by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
Kirklees Magistrates’ Court heard today (Wednesday) that the woman had been trying to retrieve fibres beneath the rollers of a carding machine at Lawton Yarns Limited on March 7 last year.
