A man has been charged with manslaughter by gross negligence in connection with the death of a member of the Cornwall-based shanty group Fisherman's Friends.

Trevor Grills died after being struck by a stage door at the G Live theatre in Guildford in 2013, hours before the group was due to perform.

Mr Grills, 54, was treated for head injuries in hospital, but pronounced dead two days later. The band's promoter Paul McMullen also lost his life, dying at the scene from injuries to his leg.

56-year-old David Naylor from Bridgnorth will appear in court in December.
