Alexandra Homes Bristol were prosecuted for breaches of Section 3 of the Health and Safety at work Act 1974. The company ran a number of specialist residential care homes. One called Alexandra House.
In October 2014, a 19 year old male resident strangled an 18 year old female resident at the home. The male was convicted of murder. The HSE prosecuted the company for failing to suitably and sufficiently risk assess the danger posed by the male to females and to put in place adequate measures to protect females in the home from him.
After legal argument as to abuse of process based on delay failed, the company pleaded guilty and were fined £125,000 and costs.
