Battersea Crane Disaster 16 years on

On 26 September 2006 Michael Alexa 23 was cleaning his car in Thessaly Road when the unthinkable happened, a crane operated by Johnathon Cloke 37, collapsed killing both men. It took ten years for Falcon Crane Hire to admit two health and safety breaches following a lengthy campaign fronted by Micheal’s Mother Liliana.

On Friday 27 September BWTUC and members of Unite Construction visited the site of Battersea’s Crane Disaster to pay their respects 16 years on.
