Crane crash

A vehicle crash with a difference is the subject of a pending High Court action. The trustees of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Westminster, which owns the Cardinal Wiseman Roman Catholic High School at Greenford, Middlesex, are seeking £78,000 compensation from Baldwins Industrial Services, of Mill Street, Slough. Baldwins owns a 12-tonne crane that rolled down a slope and crashed into the school in July last year, causing extensive damage. The claim includes an element in respect of losses incurred because the school was unable to hire out its hall owing to the damage.
