£45,000 Compensation has been paid to a man who suffered a serious hand injury during an accident at work.
According to the Coventry Telegraph, Jack Coupland had part of a finger on his right hand amputated and also cut three other fingers to the bone when they got dragged into a mechanical wood chopper in 2010.
At the time of the accident, the 20-year-old was working for Town and County Joinery at its premises in Tredington, and although he will not return to his job there, the company paid him compensation for the amputation and for loss of earnings.
Speaking about the accident, Mr Coupland said, "My hand got caught and there was nothing I could do to get it away from the blades. I think I went into a state of shock because there was so much blood."
The injured man is also a keen rugby player and said he is delighted to have worked his way back into the first team at Shipston Rugby Football Club, despite his permanent hand injury.
