We recently reported on the trial of three Warwickshire fire services managers charged with manslaughter by gross negligence following the 2007 deaths of four fire-fighters.
Since our last report, one of the three individuals charged, Paul Simmons, has since been acquitted. The Judge presiding reasoned Mr Simmons is in fact a frontline fire-fighter who has never held a senior officer role.
The trial is ongoing and a verdict on managers Timothy Woodward and Adrian Ashley is awaited.
