Chicken spill firm liquidated

A Yorkshire waste firm that was fined for repeatedly spilling offal on roads is being shut down.

Alba Transport, a subsidiary of food and animal waste specialist Leo Group, is to be put into voluntary liquidation according to a notice published in the London Gazette.

The notice says a general meeting of the company held on 19 January, resolved: “That the company be wound up voluntarily”. Armstrong Watson has been appointed liquidators

Alba was ordered to pay more than £40,000 in costs and fines by a court in September 2011 after admitting to two charges related to allowing animal waste to spill from its vehicles and asking for six similar offences to be taken into account.

The local newspaper reported that on one occasion “chicken intestines were described as being a foot deep in places and on another a grey-brown pile of intestines was seen on a pavement near a school”.

A spokesperson for the Leo Group said: “This is not a matter for us to comment upon.”
