A council's back in court this morning after a woman was killed by a horse at a country fair in Suffolk.

57-year-old Carole Bullett from Bury St Edmunds died in Addenbrookes hospital a day after being knocked down by the horse and cart at Nowton Park in June 2011.

St Edmundsbury Borough Council who ran the event are accused of Health and Safety breaches over her death and are being taken to court by the Health and Safety Executive.

Horse-and-carriage ride operator 64-year-old Duncan Drye from Bishops Road, Bury St Edmunds has admitted Health and Safety failings.

The trial at Ipswich Crown Court is expected to last two weeks.
