I've posted the attached article because of the powerful testimony of one of the guys who was hurt. All the details are attached but just read the following which is the end of the article.

"Following the hearing, Mr Metcalf said: “I still cry at the drop of a hat. If someone asks what’s happened to me, that’s the hardest bit. I wake up in the middle of the night and just can’t get back to sleep once I start thinking about it."

“There’s no way I can return to as an electrician, as I struggle to grip with my hands. I’m also constantly short of breath and my skin flakes off if I knock my hand. I just wish %%%%%% had cut the electricity supply before asking us to do the work."
