Abstract

This case concerns a prosecution under the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974. Two brothers, Michael and Stuart Ely were the operators of a water-sports centre, Lake Estate Watersports Ltd, based in Oxfordshire. The company and the two brothers were prosecuted following a fatal accident in August 1997. They were convicted at the Crown Court in Northampton in November 1999 and immediately appealed. On 19 July 2002 the Court of Appeal overturned all three convictions as unsafe.
