The managing director of a demolition firm has admitted health and safety offences which led to the death of a worker at Cammell Lairds shipyard.

Robert Corlett, 36, was crushed by a steel wall in June 2002 while dismantling the Italian cruise liner, Costa Classica at the Birkenhead yard.

Paul Nother, 40, of McCoy Brothers Ltd, in Wallasey, admitted two offences.

He was found not guilty of manslaughter at Liverpool Crown Court but admitted the breaches.

Nother, of Silverdale Road, Bromborough, and McCoy Brothers, are to be sentenced at a later date.
