The owners of the BP Grangemouth
complex could face prosecution following a
second major safety scare at the plant in
less than a fortnight.

. . .

The HSE said it would be investigating the
latest incident and a separate breakdown
at the end of May involving a power station
failure, which led to a controlled shutdown
of the refinery, and oil and gas processing

. . .

Retired BP worker Jim Scott, of Bo'ness
Road, said: "I know they're doing big
changes to change over to a new power
station. To me, this cannot happen without
some sort of incident."
