The organiser of a fireworks display is going on trial after the death of a Gunnislake dad in a motorway pile up.

Kye Thomas was among seven people who lost their lives on the M5 back in 2011

Mr Thomas was not the only person with a connection to the Duchy.

He was a driver for the company that owns Ginsters and lost his life along with colleague Terry Brice in the 34 vehicle pile up.

Michael Barton and daughter Maggie were on their way home from a funeral in Penzance.

Geoffrey Counsell from Ashill denies failing to ensure the health and safety of others and the rest of the week is expected to be spent in legal argument.
