Guilty verdict for train death
Christopher McGee who is 45 and from Wallasey, gave the signal for the driver to go as 16 year old Georgia Varley was leaning against the carriage. The sixth-form college student was drunk on a night out with friends.
Georgia fell between the train and the platform at the city's James Street station in October last year. McGee, who had denied the charge, appeared to blink away tears as the jury at Liverpool Crown Court returned their verdict of manslaughter by gross negligence following three hours and five minutes of deliberations.
The jury were then discharged from reaching a verdict in an alternative, lesser charge under the Health and Safety at Work Act. There were gasps in the public gallery from where the defendant's supporters and Georgia's family had followed proceedings. Trial judge Mr Justice Holroyde said he would pass sentence at 10am on Thursday. He remanded McGee in custody saying it was a ``very serious offence'' and he faces he faces a sentence of imprisonment.
