Blinded by Confetti Cannon

A special effects business has been handed a £16,000 fine and ordered to pay the same amount in costs after a confetti cannon cost a woman her sight.
What happened and why?

Party goers were put in a dangerous position by the use of a pyrotechnic device in a night club which needed 25 meters of clearance to operate safely.
One clubber suffered severe facial injuries and blindness.
