Man guilty of racecourse killing
Simon Wootten
The father-of-two died after a blow to the neck at the racecourse
A man has been found guilty of manslaughter after the death of a man at Kempton Park racecourse in Surrey.

Construction manager David Nobes, 31, of Feltham, west London, had denied the charge at Kingston Crown Court.

Simon Wootten, 34, collapsed and died after an argument at a hot dog stand at a Christmas market on 22 December 2005.

The court heard he suffered a blow to the neck which caused an artery to haemorrhage. Nobes is due to be sentenced on 16 November.

Mr Wootten ran a bouncy castle business and is survived by his partner and two children.
