Manslaughter

The manager of the Welsh mine where four people drowned in 2011 has been charged with manslaughter. The owners of the mine, MNS Mining, have also been charged with corporate manslaughter. The men were killed following a sudden influx of water, which resulted in them being trapped. A spokesperson for the Crown Prosecution Service said: ‘The prosecution alleges that because of the way in which its activities were managed or organised by its senior management, namely Malcolm Fyfield, the company caused the deaths of the miners by failing to ensure a safe system of working was in place. It is alleged that this failure amounted to a gross breach of duty of care owed by the company to each of the four mine workers.'
