    BLADES:WINDOW CLEANER FELL TO DEATH FROM GRADE II LISTED BUILDING
    CENTRAL LONDON; WALLINGTON, SURREY A window cleaner plummeted to his death from the third storey window of a Grade II listed building in the City after bosses failed to ensure safe working conditions. Kevin Dolan, 57, fell to his death through the open floor-to-ceiling window of Pountney Hill House, in central London, while cleaning the huge glass pane from the inside. The Old Bailey heard his tragic death on 18 October 2012 was caused by a lack of safety measures, such as harnesses or rope access. Surrey-based cleaning company Blades (London) Ltd took immediate responsibility for his tragic death and pleaded guilty to an offence under the Health and Safety Act.
