Paper recycling boss to be sentenced for manslaughter in October

A paper recycling firm's boss who admitted manslaughter following the death of one of his workers has had his sentencing hearing put back until October.

MV White's managing director Paul White admitted manslaughter during the hearing at Norwich Crown Court last month.

Kevin Arnup, a father of three children, died when he was sucked into a paper shredder at the MV White Ketteringham recycling plant in Norfolk.

The victim, who was the foreman of the plant, was killed while trying to unblock the machine.

In the trial, the court heard that the mains current should have been switched off on the machine before anyone tried to clear a blockage.

But it was also stated to the court that it was common practice for this rule to be ignored by both workers and by White himself.

The managing director and the company have also admitted breaches of health and safety law.
