Stafford fireworks factory owner jailed over fire deaths
 

A businessman convicted over the deaths of two men at a factory "rammed" with fireworks has been jailed for 10 years.
"Arrogant" Richard Pearson was found guilty of manslaughter by gross negligence last month, after employee Simon Hillier and customer Stewart Staples died at SP Fireworks in 2014.
The number of fireworks stored at the unit were "up to 10 times the permitted limit", Stafford Crown Court had heard.
Pearson, 44, was also injured in the fire in Stafford.
