The company which runs Cotswold Country Park and Beach, where a teenager drowned has appeared in court charged with breaches of health and safety law.

Kajil Devi, 15, from Feltham, West London, drowned there on July 11, 2010 as she tried to rescue her cousin.

The prosecution, brought by Cotswold District Council, said WM Active failed to comply with rules on safety.

WM Active did not enter a plea in the hearing at Cheltenham Magistrates’ Court and Magistrates committed the case to Gloucester Crown Court on April 11.
