George Collier, the owner of Parcol Developments Ltd, was found guilty of gross negligence manslaughter after a wall constructed by Parcol collapsed onto a footpath which killed a three year old child, Meg Burgess. Mr Collier had been responsible for the design and construction of the wall but did not properly supervise the build. The company was charged with breach of s 3(1) HSWA and pleaded guilty. However, in view of his direct involvement in the build, the CPS took the decision to charge Mr Collier in addition with gross negligence manslaughter. A trial jury found him guilty of that charge. Since the company was a defunct small company and Mr Collier had been imprisoned, no additional penalty was imposed against Parcol.
