British Transport Police Statement – Georgia Varley

November 14, 2012, 5:50 pm

Detective Chief Inspector Simon Taylor said: “Today’s verdict brings to a close a year-long investigation which has been extremely difficult for all involved. And I would like to take this opportunity to thank the officers and staff who have worked tirelessly to bring this case to court.

“I would also like to thank Georgia’s family for the strength and courage they have shown during the traumatic events of the past 12 months.

“Georgia died in tragic circumstances and it is right and proper that the details surrounding her death were examined by a court and jury.

“Train guards sometimes work in extremely challenging circumstances, but it is important to remember they have a duty of care to those who travel on their rail services.

“When this duty of care is not satisfactorily met, it is our duty to present the evidence to the Crown Prosecution Service who, where necessary, refer the matter to the courts.

“I hope, following today’s verdict, Georgia’s family can now gain some sense of closure and begin to put their lives back together.”
