Two married fairground workers have been found guilty of the gross negligence manslaughter of a little girl who died after a bouncy castle blew away with her inside it.

Seven-year-old Summer Grant died in hospital after she was rescued from the inflatable at an Easter fair in Harlow, Essex, on March 26 2016.

William Thurston, 29, and his wife Shelby Thurston, 26, were found guilty by majority verdict at Chelmsford Crown Court today.
