A caravan park firm must pay more than £100,000 after an unconscious swimmer spent five minutes underwater before being rescued.
Woodlands Caravan Site (Trimingham Ltd), which is registered in Wyncolls Road, Colchester, were prosecuted after a swimmer was pulled from the pool at their holiday park in Norfolk in March 2017.
The business – and health and safety experts Foley and Baugh Associated – both admitted failing to discharge their welfare duty under section 3 of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.
North Norfolk District Council prosecuted following an investigation into the incident.
The swimmer was hospitalised and has since made a good recovery.
