False record of examination leads to prosecution

Stuart Jeavons, who supplies workplace vehicles and lifting equipment, has been fined for falsifying a Report of Thorough Examination for a lift truck. Wolverhampton Magistrates’ Court heard that he had put the name of a genuine forklift truck supplier at the top of the report and forged a genuine examiner’s signature at the bottom.

Mr Jeavons, from Shropshire, entered a guilty plea and was fined £2,400 with costs of £989.
