WM Active admits health and safety breaches over teen death

Kajil Devi Kajil Devi, 15, drowned at the park in July 2010

A company which runs a water park in Gloucestershire where a teenager drowned has pleaded guilty to health and safety breaches.

Kajil Devi, from London, died after slipping under the water at Cotswold Country Park and Beach in 2010.

WM Active admitted in court to failing to ensure the health and safety of the public - a charge brought by Cotswold District Council.

The company is due to be sentenced in October.

Kajil, who was 15 and could not swim, died at the park on 11 July 2010.

A four-day inquest in 2012 ruled her death was an accident.

The Cotswold Country Park and Beach forms part of the Cotswold Water Park on the Gloucestershire-Wiltshire border.
