Manslaughter charges possible over demolition workers' deaths at Didcot

CORPORATE manslaughter charges could be brought over the deaths of two Rotherham demolition workers.

Ken Cresswell (57, above) John Shaw (61, below) and their workmates Christopher Huxtable (33) and Michael Collings died when the former Didcot Power Station in Oxfordshire collapsed in February 2016.

Thames Valley Police told a coroner’s court hearing in Oxford today they were looking at the possibility of charges of corporate manslaughter, gross negligence manslaughter, and serious health and safety breaches, with several individuals and companies having been interviewed under caution.
