Trial delay over girl's drowning
Laura Morgan
Five people will stand trial next year following Laura's death
The trial of five people charged with causing the death of a Nottingham schoolgirl in Greece through negligence has been postponed for six months.

Laura Morgan, from Woodborough, was on a sailing holiday in 2003 with her mother and sister.

The catamaran she was in capsized and Laura was hooked to it by a harness. She was trapped underwater and drowned.

Five Sunsail employees are charged over her death. On Tuesday, judges at a court in Lefkada put back the trial.

Nottingham Girls' High School dedicated a seat in a new wildlife garden to her this month.

Nottinghamshire Police have also investigated Laura's death for the coroner. The Crown Prosecution Service is following the case in Greece to determine if any further action is necessary.
