A special effects company whose confetti cannon hit a woman in the face – leaving her permanently blinded in one eye – has been fined £16,000.
James McMahon and Tory Harper, who ran the Knowsley-based UK Effects.co.uk Ltd were described by a judge as “naive and cavalier” over the accident at Liverpool super-club Cream in 2013.
Liverpool Crown Court was told how Kitty Dollah was seriously hurt when the “Stadium Shot” cannon was discharged at around 1am on 27 December 2013.

HSE comments: "As in this case, the failure of clients and principal contractors to comply with these legal duties can have tragic consequences."
"Clients must ensure contractors have the appropriate skills, knowledge and experience for the task, and must make suitable arrangements for managing a project,"
"In addition to the latter contractors must also take into account the general principles to eliminate, so far as is reasonably practicable, foreseeable risks to the health or safety of those affected by the work."
