The director of a concrete subcontractor is facing a gross negligence manslaughter charge following the death of a construction worker during work on Hampshire Cricket Club’s ground.
Philip Carsley died in February 2010 when a concrete wall fell on him during the construction of two new spectator stands at the Rose Bowl, now the Ageas Bowl, Cricket Ground in Hampshire.
Zoe Martin, Specialist Prosecutor in the CPS Special Crime Division, said: “I have carefully considered all the available evidence in relation to the tragic death of Philip Carsley.
“I have now concluded there is sufficient evidence and it is in the public interest to charge Ian Gould, director of Prefix Limited, the company contracted to install concrete units in the ground, with gross negligence manslaughter and two offences contrary to section 33 of the Health and Safety at Work Act.
“I have also concluded that there is sufficient evidence and it is in the public interest to charge Andrew Scott Limited, the company project-managing the construction of the spectator stands, with two offences contrary to section 33 of the Health and Safety at Work Act.
“Ian Gould and Andrew Scott Limited have now been summonsed to appear at West Hampshire Magistrates’ Court on 3 July 2013.
“I extend my sympathies to the family of Philip Carsley.”
Murphy Group has bought the assets of Daniel Contractors subsidiary Land & Marine.
Daniel administrators Deloitte confirmed the deal this afternoon.
The Enquirer revealed this morning that Murphy was in talks.
The deal will see 184 jobs saved as a number of contracts are taken on by Murphy.
This, together with the deals previously announced, mean that 1,174 jobs have been saved to date.
Administrators said they would continue to review their options regarding the remaining areas of the business.
Joint administrator Bill Dawson said: “We are pleased that we have been able to reach an agreement with Murphy Group that ensures that a further 184 jobs have been saved.
“We have had a number of expressions of interest in the remaining elements of the group that we are hopeful may result in further business transfers.”
