A jury has been shown the final moments of a Wirral teenager, who died under the wheels of a train.

Georgia Varley, 16, died after falling between the platform and the train at James Street station in Liverpool in October last year.

CCTV footage showed the teenager leaning with her hands on the carriage before it moved away from the station.

The prosecution at Liverpool Crown Court say Merseyrail guard Christopher McGee, 45, from Wallasey, was the only person who had the capability to prevent what happened.

His conduct, it is claimed, was deliberate and created an obvious risk of injuring her.

He denies a charge of manslaughter and an alternative charge of failing to take reasonable care for the health and safety of others.

The court heard Georgia was travelling to Liverpool in the last train from Manor Road station at about 11.30pm on Saturday October 22nd 2011.

The court heard she had been to an 18th birthday party.

The prosecution say she was "very drunk" and had the drug Mephedrone, also known as m-cat, in her system.

Relatives of Georgia where present in the silent court as the CCTV pictures were played to the jury. Afterwards, friends were heard sobbing in the public gallery.

The trial is expected to last for up to three weeks.
