I'm not in the know when it comes to crane o licences etc. but this should mean they're finished unless they get another transport manager and a sponsor? Doubtful I'd say!

Sounds like they would struggle if the same directors are there even with a new TM and Sponsor. Feel sorry for the blokes. Hopefully a decent firm will gobble them up.

Rory alot of the blokes were no better. Besides if the business folds the work and jobs will be picked up by other firms and jobs will become available.

Cranes do not run under O licence , but all the ballast trucks etc do ;)

No ballast no big cranes unless you sub that bit but that'll be uneconomical. The crane business super competitive so I guess the business will be up for sale then?

Any support truck over 3.5 tonnes could be subject to O license and they wont do a lot with out them. Cost a lot to hire it all in.

Shows the arrogance of the directors that having lost a man in a fatality, being under close scrutiny due to that incident and being found to be "lacking" in some aspects of their drivers hours, nothing changed, in fact matters got worse it seems.
Makes a change (imho) to find someone with the power to do something about it (traffic commissioner) prepared to draw a line in the sand while openly admitting it could ruin the company.
