A sports equipment company and one of its directors have been fined a total of £36,000 after selling a running treadmill which sliced off part of a man's finger.

James Max lost the end of his wedding ring-finger while assembling the treadmill at his home in Aslockton, Nottinghamshire.

He has since had two operations to reconstruct his finger. But he says he still feels pain from the nerve damage and everyday tasks such as typing and holding objects are difficult.

Youngsters warned to stay off railway lines during holidays

by Hannah Stokes

Figures show that cases of railway trespass soar during the school holidays and after the clocks change - as children play outside during longer and lighter evenings.

Now police and rail safety officials are trying new tactics to spread the safety message during the Easter break.

They're patrolling in a special train - along the Robin Hood line in Nottinghamshire. Anyone they spot who shouldn't be there, could face up to ten years in prison, or a £1000 fine.
