THE FORMER hotelier was handed an eight month jail sentence after he admitted to breaching fire safety rules in 2014.
Mr Amandeep Sandhu owned the Cutlers Hotel, and was prosecuted by the Fire and Rescue service following an investigation in 2014, which found that the hotel – at that time – did not have a working fire alarm, ordering its closure while safety improvements were made.
However, at a second inspection three days later, more fire safety law breaches were discovered, including that Mr Sandhu had not carried out an adequate fire risk assessment, as well as that the hotel did not have the requisite fire detectors and alarms. Other breaches consisted of inadequate emergency lighting, and that hotel staff had not been given adequate training.
