Gross negligence manslaughter charge

The Crown Prosecution Service in England has announced that gross negligence manslaughter charges are to be brought following the death of a cricket ground worker.

Philip Carsley died on 8th February 2010 when a concrete wall fell on him during the construction of two new spectator stands at the Rose Bowl, now the Ageas Bowl, Cricket Ground in Hampshire.

Zoe Martin, Specialist Prosecutor in the CPS Special Crime Division, announced that following careful consideration of all available evidence, she has concluded that there is sufficient evidence and it is in the public interest to charge the director of the company contracted to install concrete units in the ground with gross negligence manslaughter and two offences contrary to section 33 of the Health and Safety at Work Act.

She also confirmed that the company project-managing the construction of the spectator stands would be charged with two offences contrary to section 33 of the Health and Safety at Work Act.
