York hotel fined £110,000 for inadequate fire alarm system

The company running the Grade II-listed Lamb And Lion hotel in Petergate, York have been fined a six-figure sum after its fire alarm system was found to be out of order. Sloping Tactic Limited have been ordered to pay £110,000 (plus additional court costs in excess of £3,000) after continuing to operate after the building’s fire alarm system had been condemned.

North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service had served prohibition and enforcement notices valid until a new system had been installed.
