    BOSS RED-FACED AFTER DRUNK WORKERS JIBE - By Brian Lironi, Glasgow Sunday Mail, UK
    A TOP boss has been forced into an embarrassing climbdown after claiming industrial accidents were caused by drunk workers.

    He claimed plans for a corporate homicide law in Scotland - which would see firms prosecuted over the deaths of workers - were a 'witch hunt' against bosses.
