A loft conversion company is due to be sentenced over the death of 16-year-old Alfie Perrin who fell from scaffolding at a house in Wanstead.

The apprentice, from Enfield, died from a head injury after slipping from the property in Camden Road on November 12, 2012 where Roof Top Rooms Ltd was completing an extension.

Site supervisor Andrew Voy, 35, of Memorial Avenue, West Ham, was cleared of manslaughter following a trial on March 31 at Snaresbrook Crown Court.

The sentencing of Rooftop Rooms Ltd, which pleaded guilty to breaching health and safety regulations, was due to take place in May, but was pushed back until this week.

A three-day Newton Hearing began at Snaresbrook Crown Court today to agree the facts in the case before sentencing.

A judge will listen to testimony from both the defence and prosecution before deciding whether the company was culpable for Alfie’s death.
