Man to be charged after toddler death
A man who designed a wall which collapsed and killed a three-year-old girl will be charged with gross negligence manslaughter, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) has confirmed
Meg Burgess was killed when a wall designed by George Collier and constructed by his company, Parcol Developments, collapsed on to a footpath in Ffordd Penrhwylfa, Prestatyn, North Wales, on July 26, 2008, a CPS spokeswoman said.
She said it had been decided it would not be in the public interest to charge the firm, of which Mr Collier was a director, with corporate manslaughter but the company should be charged with an offence under Section 3 of the Health and Safety Act at Work 1974.
