Nicholas Flyn pleaded guilty to four breaches of Asbestos Regulations at Canterbury Magistrate’s Court last week.

Between 27 April and 1 May 2013, the self-employed handyman (age 50), of Wildred Road, Dover,  carried out a job at a house in Shepherdswell, Kent where he unsafely removed asbestos, potentially exposing a family of six, including four children between the ages of five and 14.

Flyn pleaded guilty to breaching The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 Regulations 5(1), 8(1), 11(1)(a) and 16.

He was ordered to complete 250 hours of community service and pay £2,000 towards costs for uncontrolled asbestos removal from a rented domestic property.
