Gleision mine disaster manslaughter charges

BBC Wales and The Independent are reporting that the manager of the drift near Rhos in which four miners suffered fatal injuries has been charged with their manslaughter. The limited company which owns the mine has also been charged.

Presumably complications arising from the possibility of criminal charges caused the delay to the official government report.

[Update: the initial hearing will be in Neath magistrates' court on 1st February]
