Birmingham Ladywood MP Shabana Mahmood, speaking ahead of tomorrow’s four-year anniversary since four men lost their lives at the Shredmet recycling facility, said:
“I have been raising serious concerns about this tragic case with both the government and the Health and Safety Executive for four years. Time after time, we have seen delays, missed deadlines and a worrying lack of transparency.
“As we mark the fourth anniversary since five people lost their lives at the Shredmet facility, and as families and friends prepare to gather and commemorate the lives lost, we must redouble our efforts to get some form of closure for those families who have already waited far too long.
“These families need answers. Four years have passed since Almamo Jammeh, Ousmane Diaby, Bangally Dukureh, Saibo Sillah and Mahamadou Jagana tragically lost their lives. They — and their families — deserve far better than the way the HSE and the government have treated them to date.”
