Site security staff on trial over festival death

A 32 year old male attendee at a music festival died after being hit by a number of cars, when he was dumped on a road by security guards who had ejected him from the event, a court has heard. Paul Wickerson had been attending the Brownstock Festival in Essex in 2013, when he was found by security guards Gregory Maxwell and Brian Atkins, wandering through a field in a disoriented state.

Chelmsford Crown Court was told that rather than directing Mr Wickerson – who had taken a cocktail of cocaine, ketamine and LSD – to medics, Maxwell instead handcuffed him and bundled him into the back of a Land Rover to see if he could make his way back via a four-mile 'bush tucker trial'. Maxwell and Atkins, of Essex and east London respectively, both deny false imprisonment and kidnap. The trial continues.
