Venue give their reaction to Trevor Grills' death

Fisherman's Friends band member Trevor Grills died in hospital last night from injuries sustained in a freak accident at the G Live concert venue in Guildford, Surrey on Saturday.

The group's promoter, Paul McMullen, died at the scene from leg injuries.

The loading bay area where the accident happened is out of bounds while investigations continue, although G Live remains open.

We are devastated to hear that Fisherman's Friends band member Trevor Grills died in hospital last night as a result of the head injuries suffered on Saturday.

The tragic events of Saturday also claimed the life of the band's promoter.

Both men were involved in an accident in the loading bay area of the G Live concert venue prior to their scheduled performance that evening.

Surrey Police and the Health and Safety Executive investigations are ongoing with no further information being available at this time.

Guildford Borough Council and HQ Theatres, who own and manage the venue respectively, continue to fully assist with the investigation.

The thoughts and prayers of the G Live staff are with the families and friends of all who have been affected by this tragic accident.
