A railway guard accused of causing the death of a teenager who fell under a train has been convicted of manslaughter.
Christopher McGee, 45, gave the signal for the driver to depart as Georgia Varley, 16, was leaning against the carriage.
The sixth-form college student, who was drunk on a night out in Liverpool with friends, fell between the train and the platform at the city's James Street station in October last year.
McGee, who had denied the charge, appeared to blink away tears as the jury at Liverpool Crown Court returned their verdict of manslaughter by gross negligence following three hours and five minutes of deliberations.
The jury were then discharged from reaching a verdict in an alternative, lesser charge under the Health and Safety at Work Act.
