– Helen Morris, from CPS Mersey-Cheshire
“This was a tragic case. The prosecution was based on the fact that the defendant had a duty, by reason of his function as train guard, to look after Georgia and that he breached that duty of care by starting the train when she was in a position of danger
“Mr McGee, as a trained guard with 20 years experience, would have known that the movement of the train would put Georgia act risk of injury and even death. Nevertheless he gave the instruction to start the train with terrible consequences.”
A jury has been shown the final moments of a wirral teenager, who died under the wheels of a train.
