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.
Today the IRG Europe's purchasing director Donal Sharkey appeared at Nottingham Crown Court for sentencing after he and the Brierley Hill-based company pleaded guilty to supplying the treadmill without it containing sufficient instructions and warnings on how to assemble the item safely.
Trading Standards officers say the instruction warnings on the equipment sold by IRG Europe Ltd failed to meet modern safety standards.
