Seventh Man Arrested Over Farm Death

A seventh man has been charged in connection with the death of a businessman during a suspected botched burglary at his farm.

Oliver Payne, 25, faces charges of manslaughter, conspiracy to commit burglary and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.

Payne, of Sandhurst Road, Tunbridge Wells, Kent, has been remanded until another appearance in October

The charges follow the death of Julian Gardner, 53, who suffered multiple injuries in the early hours of October 11 last year at Bush Barn Farm.

Mr Gardner ran an agricultural and car repair business at the farm, off the A21, near Robertsbridge, East Sussex.

The compression-type injuries he suffered are believed to have been caused when he was crushed between two vehicles.

Six other people have been charged in connection with his death. A trial is scheduled to take place at Lewes Crown Court from February 13 next year.
