Discount store ignored fire safety rules

Poundstretcher were prosecuted after Doncaster Council found that all the fire exit routes at the Doncaster warehouse were blocked.

The initial enforcement action was to serve an Improvement Notice. However, a subsequent visit found that although there had been some progress, contraventions still existed and an appearance at the Magistrates’ Court was merited. Doncaster Magistrates handed down fines and costs totalling £43,000. This follows convictions for similar offences at two other Yorkshire branches of Poundstretcher in 2009.
