Fireman Admits Siren Caused Farmer's Death

6:03pm UK, Tuesday December 14, 2010

Kat Higgins, Sky News Online

A fireman has admitted causing the death of a farmer who was crushed by his herd of cows after they were startled by a fire engine's sirens.

Howard Lee was walking his dairy cows back to his milking parlour

Julian Lawford pleaded guilty at Exeter Crown Court to a charge of causing the death of Harold Lee by careless driving.

Mr Lee, 75, was trampled to death by his cows as he walked around 100 of them along a country road near his home in Burtle, Somerset, in August 2009.

Lawford, 49, was due to stand trial accused of manslaughter by gross negligence but admitted the lesser charge, which was accepted by the prosecution.

Richard Smith QC, defending, said: "Such a plea reflects that he drove his fire engine forward with its lights flashing with the herd in front of him, which caused them to act as they did, causing the death.

"This plea would be acceptable to the Crown Prosecution Service."

Mr Lee was walking his animals back to his milking parlour from a nearby field when the incident happened.

He sustained serious head and chest injuries and was airlifted to the Royal United Hospital in Bath, before being transferred to Frenchay Hospital in Bristol, where he died six days later.

Sentencing was adjourned until December 20 for the preparation of pre-sentence reports and Lawford was released on conditional bail.

How very sad. What were the firemen thinking having their sirens blaring down a country lane, and seeing a herd of cows in front of them Surely anyone with any common sense would know it would really scare them angry

Retired DCI Gonçalo Amaral: "The English can always present the conclusions to which they themselves arrived in 2007. Because they know, they have the evidence of what happened - they don't need to investigate anything. All this is now a mere 'show off'."

Retired murder DCI Colin Sutton: "I would also like to make the point that Operation Grange was so restricted from the start as to be destined to fail."

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley made public on national TV that Operation Grange is a complete fraud.

Ex-DCI Andy Redwood had a "revelation moment" on BBC's Crimewatch on 14th October 2013 when he announced that Operation Grange had eliminated the Tanner sighting - which opened up the 'window of opportunity', in accordance with their remit, to allow the fake abduction to happen.

Despite "irrelevant behaviour" from blood and cadaver dogs in the McCann's apartment, on Kate McCann's clothes, and in the car they hired three weeks after Maddie disappeared, Ex-Chief Inspector, Ian Horrocks, said: "The thought that Kate and Gerry McCann had anything to do with the death of their daughter is frankly preposterous."

Gerry McCann called for example to be made of 'trolls'. SKY News reporter Martin Brunt doorstepped Brenda Leyland on 2 October 2014. She was then found dead in a Leicester hotel room. Brenda paid the price. She paid with her life.

Ex-Deputy Chief Constable, Jim Gamble QPM, congratulated SKY reporter, Martin Brunt, on twitter for doorstepping Brenda Leyland on behalf of Gerry McCann.
