A 55-year-old man from the Bridgnorth area of Shropshire has been arrested today (Monday, August 4) in connection with the investigation into the deaths of two men, following an incident at the G Live theatre venue in Guildford on February 9, 2013.

A police statement said that the man: “…was arrested on suspicion of manslaughter by gross negligence and is currently in custody.”

It has been reported by Surrey Police today (Tuesday, August 5) that after the man was arrested on Monday (4 August), he was interviewed and was then bailed. He is now due to return tomorrow (Wednesday, 6 August).

The two men killed were members of the Fishermen’s Friends singing group. They were named as Paul McMullen and Trevor Grills from Port Isaac, Cornwall.

    Can we expect corporate manslaughter charges of the company managing the G Live, and maybe even GBC who commissioned the bulding? Or will it be the usual German or Italian style of prosecution by H&SE of the lowest individual in the organisation?
