A father and son today appeared in Cardiff Crown Court over the death of a man who fell into a lake while collecting golf balls.

Jonathan Pike, 47, and his son Dale, 25, face a manslaughter by gross negligence charge following the death of Gareth Pugh at Peterstone Lakes Golf Club in Wentloog near Cardiff.

Mr Pugh, 29, was fishing out golf balls at the club last February when he fell into the freezing lake.

Players and staff had raised the alarm when the father-of-one fell into the water.

After being pulled out he was taken to the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff, where he was pronounced dead.

The two men were released on bail without entering a plea. They are due to stand trial in July.
