Acompany involved in fruit and vegetable production has been fined £320,000 after a man “who always put family first” was killed at a site in Burscough.

Francis Schlachter, known as Frank, suffered severe head injuries when he fell from a skip at a farm operated by M.A.Forshaw Limited on 3 January 2020. The 64-year-old from Southport was described as ‘a rock’ by his wife of 35 years Linda, who said how much he would be missed by his friends and family. “I have lost my soul mate,” Linda said.

"He was a gentleman through and through, who will live on in our hearts and memories forever. It is the little things in life that you take for granted, which are greatly cherished now he’s gone and they mean the absolute world. Frank was my rock. He was kind, dependable and always put his family first. Since his passing, I have had a fair share of trials and tribulations to encounter and these have been a great challenge without the support of a beloved husband. We have all suffered the loss and it will be embedded in our bones forever. No man should go to work and never return home after a day of hard work.”
