Men Won't Face Charges Over Skip Death

Four men have been told that they won't face criminal prosecution for manslaughter by gross negligence over a death at an industrial site in Ford, West Sussex.

The four are; a 62-year old from Wickham, Hampshire, a 26-year old from Fareham, Hampshire, a 47-year-old man from Birdham near Chichester and a 50-year-old man from Bognor Regis.

They had been arrested in September and October, following the death of 66-year-old Lindsay Campbell, from Cunningham Road, Waterlooville, Hampshire, in an incident at South Coast Skips, Rudford Industrial Estate, Ford, on Wednesday 25 July.

They were subsequently released on police bail until 6 December, but they have now been informed that they have been stood down from that requirement.
 
The investigation was carried out by detectives from the Surrey and Sussex Major Crime Team with the support of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), and following consultation with the Crown Prosecution Service it has now been decided that there is insufficient evidence to initiate criminal proceedings for manslaughter.

However the HSE are now taking the lead in the investigation and are considering prosecutions for offences under the Health and Safety at Work Act.

Mr Campbell's family have been informed.
