On 15th September 2011 four experienced miners died at the Gleision Colliery in South Wales.

In respect of each of the deceased miners the company faces a charge of corporate manslaughter and Mr Fyfield faces a charge of gross negligence manslaughter.

The case will be listed for the first time on 1st February 2013 at Neath Magistrates Court.
