A fireworks contractor who was in charge of a display on the night of a motorway pile up in which seven people died has been cleared of breaching health and safety laws.

The accident happened two years ago on the M5 motorway, 200 yards from the display at a rugby club near Taunton, Somerset.

Manslaughter charges against Geoffrey Counsell were dropped earlier this year.

Jon Kay reports.
