The Westminster branch of Age Concern has been fined £15,000 for breaches of health and safety law.

An 88 year-old woman who refused to wear a seat belt died of a broken neck in 2006 after being flung from a mini-van when the driver made an emergency stop.

The court at the Old Bailey ruled that staff had failed to enforce the charity’s policy that all passengers being transported had to be strapped in.
