Two fairground workers charged with the manslaughter of Norwich schoolgirl Summer Grant are due to stand trial today.
Seven-year-old Summer, a Valley Primary Academy pupil from Hellesdon, died from multiple injuries after a strong gust of wind apparently swept the bouncy castle she was playing on across a park in Harlow, Essex, on March 26 2016.
The trial begins today (April 17) at Chelmsford Crown Court and is expected to last three weeks.
David Jones, of Norwich-based law firm Morgan Jones Pett Solicitors, who represent Summer’s family, said: “The family have faced an agonising wait for the criminal prosecution to take place.
“They remain deeply distressed by the loss of their bright, beautiful and loving little girl. This is an extremely anxious time for them all.”
