Two Jailed Over Parasail Death

Two men found guilty of criminal negligence have been sentenced to 20 months in prison after Glenn Hudson's death last summer.

The 50 year old from Wivenhoe in Colchester was strapped to his daughter Emma when the harness to his parasail snapped in July last year.

The roof tiler's wife Linda wants better safety checks to be put in place ahead of the summer holiday season and told Heart: "We still miss Glenn everyday and I really don't want this happening again.

"Part of me still doesn't really believe he's never coming home".
