TWO fairground workers have pleaded not guilty to the manslaughter of a girl who was fatally injured when the bouncy castle she was playing on blew away.

Summer Grant, seven, from Norwich, was visiting the funfair in Harlow Town Park, on 26 March 2016 and died later in hospital.

Shelby Thurston, 25 and William Thurston, 28, from Whitecross Road, Wilburton, Cambridgeshire appeared before Chelmsford Crown Court on Wednesday morning (Aug 16th).

They will go on trial on February 5th, 2018.

The pair, who were given bail, also denied charges of failing to discharge a general health and safety duty under the Health and Safety at Work Act.
