Flower firm cleared of corporate manslaughter


A flower firm in Norfolk has been cleared of corporate manslaughter following the death of a worker in July 2010.
Grzegorz Krystian Pieton, 26, of Terrington St Clement, was killed when the trailer he was towing touched an overhead power line.
The incident happened while he was working at Belmont Nursery in the village.
The jury at Norwich Crown Court cleared the nursery’s operator PS & JE Ward of manslaughter, but found it guilty of a breach of health and safety law.
The firm, based in King’s Lynn, is due to be sentenced on 6 June.
