Two building firms have been fined a total of £18,000 after the scaffolding they erected collapsed onto a railway line at Aberystwyth station.
The charges follow an accident on 22 February 2005 when a 52m-long, three-level-high section of system scaffolding on a building site adjacent to Aberystwyth railway station collapsed and obstructed the track.
