No speculation, say the police but you can't help but speculate can you?
Question Author
to speculate i suppose - sub judice- clearly its the parents who've been arrested but the charge is odd and i wonder what on earth could have happened
This is local to me - about twelve miles away, and the word on the street locally is that a boiler explosion is being explored.
the power to arrest under suspicion
is pretty weak
retro will give you chapter and verse
"anything which is not fanciful" - ( is used for money laundering )

since the parents were there and are alive and four kids are dead suspecting them is not fanciful at all ....

charging them is a different matter
when discussion should stop BUT the authorities are pretty supine when it comes to speculation in the social media ....
Then why the manslaughter charge?
I dont see that they have been charged - - so it is not sub judice
I'm not up to date with this - haven't seen any news for a few days.
erm arresting on suspicion
and charging
are two different things ....

limited discussion after charging - but before - - - -anything goes
BEDNOBS, on the CPS website it says,
"Gross Negligence Manslaughter

This is where the death is a result of a grossly negligent (though otherwise lawful) act or omission on the part of the defendant. The law in respect of this has been clarified in the case of R v Adomako (1994) 3 All ER 79 where a four stage test for gross negligence manslaughter known as the Adomako Test was outlined by the House of Lords:

The test involves the following stages:

a) the existence of a duty of care to the deceased;
b) a breach of that duty of care which;
c) causes (or significantly contributes) to the death of the victim; and
d) the breach should be characterised as gross negligence, and therefore a crime."



Question Author
yes but i cant imagine what circumstances would lead to the suspicion of that charge in this case
Arson
Speculated before reading the article.
DIY repair?
Fire damage arson in the hope of a move to a better council property?
possible negligence if they failed to get gas safety check done?

the poor bairns tho.
Or were switching the gas meter around.
Lots of just speculation, at least wait for correners and fire brigade reports before being to hasty?
