Explosion at Crossrail: worker seriously injured

Film Length: 3:05

Having sacked safety reps for pointing out the danger of an exposed 12,000v live cable at their Westbourne Park site, Crossrail now need to explain how a worker was able to accidently cut through another live cable at their Holborn site. The resulting explosion set him on fire and has left him in hospital with 70% burns. Bam, Ferrovial and Kier are getting £12 billion of our money to build the Crossrail project – we need a public enquiry NOW as to why they are putting their workers’ lives at risk like this.
