Alton Towers operator Merlin fined £5m over Smiler crash

The fine was mitigated by a third because Merlin pleaded guilty. This avoidable incident happened because Merlin failed to put in place systems that allowed their engineers to work safely on the ride while it was running. They seem to have learnt the lesson. Now the rest of the industry needs to too.
