An Essex lorry driver has been found guilty of gross negligence manslaughter at Ipswich Crown Court.
The jury returned a guilty verdict in relation to the gross negligence manslaughter charge in connection with Neville Wightman's death and Paul Napier will be sentenced next month.
Following the trial Detective Inspector Kevin Hayward from the Joint Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team who oversaw the investigation said:
This was a complex investigation which we carried out with the assistance of the Health and Safety Executive. I hope the verdict at court today will go someway to healing the pain Neville Wightman’s family have gone through over the past 18 months since his tragic and untimely death.
