A carer who was looking after an autistic man when he drowned in a Nottinghamshire lake has been jailed for 4 months.

Nikki Deaney was responsible for supervising Majid Akhtar, when he was found face-down in Kingsmill Reservoir near Mansfield on the 10th September 2012.

Nottingham Crown Court heard Ms Deaney, who was employed as a Care Assistant by Nottingham City Council, lost sight of the 28-year-old after becoming distracted by her mobile phone.

Phone records showed she spent almost 20 minutes calling & texting people while walking around the reservoir with Mr Akhtar as part of activity trip from Springwood Day Centre.

An inquest two years ago found Majid Akhtar probably fell into the water after suffering an epileptic seizure.

Last month Ms Deaney admitted a breach of duty of care under the Health & Safety At Work Act.

In an impact statement read out on court Mr Akhtar's father said the family had 'suffered physically & emotionally' as a result of Majid's death.
