Guildford Crown Court

Four men charged with offences connected to the tragic incident at Guildford Station, in which 20 year old Ryan Harrison was killed in March, faced a preliminary hearing at Guildford Crown Court today.

The four defendants Joshua Elphick, 20, of Abbotswood, Guildford, charged with manslaughter and affray; Jack Hardy, of Findlay Drive, Guildford; Harry Miller, of Coltsfoot Drive, Guildford; and Adam Kulikowski, of Dukes Close, Cranleigh, all aged 20, sat together in the dock, all charged with affray. All were smartly turned out in jacket, collar and tie and had only to confirm their identities before proceedings moved to a discussion of trial dates.

The judge, Hon Christopher Critchlow, commented, that in the circumstances of the case, the sooner it was brought to trial the better. A date was set for the trial to commence on February 3rd.

The judge allowed the four defendants to be released on unconditional bail with an interim report date in November.

At the conclusion of the hearing Ryan Harrison’s mother, who was sitting in a crowded public gallery, had to be comforted by supporters.
