Preston hotel owner given 6 month PRISON SENTENCE & £20,000 FINE
A Preston hotel owner who put the lives of his guests and tenants at risk has been given a 6 month suspended prison sentence and ordered to pay £38,000 in fines and costs.
Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service carried out an inspection at the Derby Court Hotel on Pole Street in February 2018 and found numerous fire safety breaches.
Warren Spencer, prosecuting, told Preston Crown Court that there were a number of persons staying on the premises at the time of the inspection. As a result of the fire safety breaches that were discovered during the initial inspection, a prohibition notice was served by the Fire Service.
Judge Philip Parry said: “In my judgement you displayed a casual, if not cavalier attitude to fire safety. Your failure to ensure the building was adequately protected can only be down to your wish to save money.”
Hammer, pleaded guilty to four fire safety breaches by failing to take general fire safety precautions by ensuring adequate separation; failing to complete an adequate risk assessment relating to maintenance, monitoring and fire drills; failing to maintain adequate means of escape and failing to maintain systems to prevent the risk of death or serious injury. The court heard following Hammer’s previous conviction he had instructed the services of a specialist fire safety firm to carry out regular inspections. But a full audit of the premises and the safety systems inside was never requested or carried out. The judge told Hammer: “I have seen photographs of your premises and it was crying out for it.”
