A tanning salon owner is sentenced over safety breaches


The owner of an unmanned tanning salon where a 14-year-old was seriously burned earlier in the year has been sentenced and ordered to pay court costs after admitting health and safety breaches.

Kirsty McRae spent nearly 20 minutes on a sun-bed at the unmanned salon owned by James Hadley in Barry, Vale of Glamorgan.

The sentence does not relate to the injuries sustained by the teenager, but the incident prompted an inspection of the premises.

BBC Wales correspondent Wyre Davies reports.
