Two people have been charged with manslaughter after the death of a 56-year-old Bristol man.
Matthew James Hill, 31 and Michaela Sweeting, 38, both from Totterdown, have both appeared at Bristol Magistrates Court today. It follows an incident in the Quaker Memorial Garden off Redcliffe Hill on Tuesday.
Formal identification of the 56 year old victim has yet to take place.
More than 100,000 people are expected to pass through Bristol Airport this weekend. As the summer season gets underway passengers are being advised to leave extra time to get to the airport.
A £24 million expansion is underway with the first phase of the new terminal opening in July. The work is expected to cause more traffic queues than normal.
“Many of our passengers this summer will be heading off for a well-earned break, so the last thing we want is for their journey to start with the stress of nearly missing a flight.
We want Bristol Airport to be the most convenient and friendly place to start your journey, which is why major developments are underway to further enhance our facilities. However, carrying out major construction work in a busy terminal can be challenging, so we are asking passengers to help us keep disruption to a minimum by following our advice when travelling this summer.”
