A New Zealand tour company which organised a doomed trip to the White Island volcano is facing a fine of up to £750,000 after an eruption killed at least six people. White Island Tours could be hit with the penalty under health and safety legislation in New Zealand after the country's regulator announced it is investigating. The company could also be ordered to pay reparations potentially totalling millions of pounds to people caught up in the disaster. But the firm is currently facing no criminal charges after police backtracked on an earlier announcement of an inquiry, saying it is 'too early to say' whether a crime has been committed. At least six people are dead, nine have been listed as missing, and 30 others are in hospital after an eruption on New Zealand's White Island while people were taking a tour White Island Tours, the company at the centre of the disaster, is now facing a £750,000 fine and millions of pounds in reparation payments after the country's … [Read more...] about Tour company that organised doomed trip to New Zealand volcano is facing £750,000 fine and million-pound compensation bill as expert says Royal Caribbean could also be sued in the US

As an ambulance driver during the war, he had witnessed Europe at its most destructive. Flos Campi (Flower of the Field), his 1925 work for viola, chorus and chamber … [Read more...] about This isle is full of noises: the trouble with ‘English music’
