Clinical waste firm HES confirms it has ceased operations

The firm at the centre of a row over stockpiled hospital waste has confirmed it has ceased operations.
In its first public statement, Healthcare Environmental Services (HES) said all 400 staff were now redundant.
About 150 staff at its North Lanarkshire headquarters were given redundancy letters on Thursday.
HES lost its contracts with NHS Scotland and 17 NHS trusts in England after it was found to be stockpiling clinical waste.
