A Health and Safety Executive prosecution is being brought following the death of an 11-year-old girl at Drayton Manor theme park.
On 9 May 2017, Evha Jannath died after falling from the park’s Splash Canyon water ride.
Drayton Manor Park Ltd of Drayton Manor Drive, Tamworth, Staffordshire will face a charge under Section 3 of the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act.
The criminal proceedings have not yet commenced, because an inquest into Evha’s death, due to be heard in November, needs to take place first.
