A company faces prosecution in the wake of a toddler's death, after a garden slide accident. Newcastle upon Tyne City Council confirmed it plans to prosecute John Menzies UK Ltd, parent company of the Early Learning Centre (ELC), which sold the slide.

A spokeswoman said the prosecution was being brought under toy safety regulations and if convicted, the company could be fined up to pounds 5,000. Earlier this year Amy Grieveson, three, died in Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary after the accident. She was found hanging and unconscious after her head became trapped between the actual slide and a support strut.
