Airbus is facing charges after an experienced mechanic at its Flintshire factory was crushed to death.

Donald Williams, 62. from Buckley, died at Broughton in November 2011.

The company appeared before magistrates at Mold on charges brought by the Health and Safety Executive.

It is alleged that Airbus failed to ensure Mr Williams' safety, to assess the risks of working with a Ford 3610 tractor and to provide adequate training when using the machinery.

The case will now be listed for 10 April at Wrexham Magistrates' Court.

An inquest jury at Ruthin returned a verdict of misadventure on Mr Williams last November after hearing he was caught between a tractor and a hopper in the incident and died later in hospital.
