    This work should be properly planned to ensure the safety of customers using the retail premises.
    A proper method statement for the repair work and scaffolding should have been drawn up. A covered walk way over the entrance was all that was needed.
    “Emergency Closure” are words the HSE really don’t like to hear.
    More cowboys at loose in Penarth?

    Has the scafolding been “scaf-tagged” even??
