Wallop Defence Systems says it offers its 'sincere condolences' to the family and friends of Anthony Sheridan, who died in an explosion. The company said it had pleaded guilty at the first reasonable opportunity to offences under the Health and Safety at Work Act.
"Wallop takes health and safety extremely seriously. The company has, in the six years since the incident took place, made every effort to prevent such a tragedy from happening again. A full review of the manufacturing process has been undertaken."
