A company director has been jailed for two years after a wall collapsed, killing a three-year-old girl.
George Collier, 49, from Kinmel Bay, was today found guilty of manslaughter on the grounds of gross negligence - a charge he had denied.
Meg Burgess was walking home from the shops along a footpath in Meliden, near Prestatyn, with her mother and baby brother in July 2008 when the wall collapsed.
Mold Crown Court heard Meg suffered 'catastrophic' injuries, and despite attempts to revive her she was pronounced dead 10 minutes after arriving at Glan Clwyd Hospital in Bodelwyddan.
George Collier's company, Parcol Developments Ltd, had been hired to build the wall as part of renovation work on a cottage.
But the court heard that the wall had not been built to the standard required.
The jury took nearly three hours to unanimously find him guilty. He had been warned to expect a custodial sentence.
Parcol Developments Ltd, had pleaded guilty to breaching the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 at an earlier hearing.
The company, which is understood to be penniless, received no separate penalty.
