'Not Guilty' Plea in Spectator Death Case
A lot of comments about whats right and wrong. For non uk folks, the incident is covered by the health and safety at work act (in the text above). This states that the organisers have a duty of care to the people at the event BUT also the people visiting also have an obligation under that law to act in a safe manner - that answers some concern you all seem to be having. The important bit is the law requires the organisers to carry out safety to a REASONABLY PRACTICAL level (they use these words exactly). So you can see its not a case of you turning up and someone else is responsible for you no matter what happens. The court case will establish whether the organisers did all that was reasonably practical. Cleary they think they did as they have pleaded not guilty. The HSE have to prosecute because the law states that you provide a safe place of work. This was not the case as the lady died (that bit is black and white). Ultimately someone didn't go home to their family and when is everything said and done that will still be the case. Tragic.

'Not Guilty' Plea in Spectator Death Case
@egb81: I think its a prosecution brought by the UK health and safety executive (HSE). The police investigate first and if no criminal act (watch the wording - a criminal act is where someone set out to make this happen) was discovered then the police hand it over to the HSE and they investigate on failures to provide a safe place etc. Under UK laws there are expectations on prior risk assessment and other factors. If you are found wanting in these areas then the HSE lead the prosecution. The maximum penalty is manslaughter when there is gross negligence. There have been many large scale incidents in the UK (train crashes) where many deaths did not result in any accountability. UK law has been changed to bring some accountability to management (I'm assuming organisers in this case).
