A north-east memorial firm has been fined more than £23,000 after a worker’s spine was crushed by a falling slab of granite.

A&J Robertson employee, Kenneth Rennie, was left with a “shattered vertebra” after a large piece of rock became detached from a six tonne boulder and struck him and pinned him to the ground.
