Three G4S custody officers have pleaded not guilty to the manslaughter of Jimmy Mubenga, who died on a plane as he was deported from the UK.

The 46-year-old died after falling ill, as a flight prepared to leave Heathrow Airport for Angola in October 2010.

Colin Kaler, 51, from Bedfordshire, Terrence Hughes, 53, from Hampshire, and Stuart Tribelnig, 38, from Surrey pleaded not guilty at the Old Bailey.

An inquest found Mr Mubenga died of cardio-respiratory collapse.
