The owner of a textile firm died after he was dragged into machinery while removing debris with a metal bar, an inquest heard.

Nasir Hussain, of Ravens Avenue, Ravensthorpe, suffered fatal injuries after attempting to remove a blockage while the carding machine - which is used as part of the felt manufacturing process - was still running.

The 36-year-old, who was managing director of Felt Supplies Limited in Bradford, was crushed by the heavy-duty piece of machinery at 7.30am on February 1 last year. Health and Safety Executive inspector Jacqueline Ferguson told Bradford Coroner’s Court on Wednesday that they had found persistent evidence of employees breaching safety regulations, with 78 incidents recorded in 10 the days before the fatal incident.
