Gleision mine: probably last piece of the jigsaw

The Evening Post reports on the details of recently-released findings of the Health and Safety Executive on the disaster which occurred in Rhos in .September 2011

The report says: "Working closely with officers from South Wales Police's Major Crimes Unit, the Health and Safety Executive mines inspectors progressively analysed the information over the ensuing days, weeks and months, to build up a picture of how the mine was being worked at the time of the incident.

"The site investigation team did not find any evidence at the mine of an assessment of inrush hazards or precautions to be taken to guard against the risk from inrushes."

We are probably as near closure as we will ever be on this life-shattering event.
