A railway guard accused of causing the death of a teenager who fell under a train was convicted of manslaughter today.

Christopher McGee, 45, gave the signal for the driver to depart as Georgia Varley, 16, was leaning against the carriage.

The sixth-form college student, who was drunk on a night out in Liverpool with friends, fell between the train and the platform at the city's James Street station in October last year.

McGee will be sentenced tomorrow and has been told to expect a custodial sentence.
