A man has been charged over the death of a teenage girl who fell between a carriage and the platform at a Liverpool railway station.

Georgia Varley, 16, of Wallasey, Wirral, died in the incident at James Street station on 22 October last year.

A 44-year-old man from Wallasey has been charged with manslaughter by gross negligence, a spokesman for British Transport Police said.

He is due to appear at Liverpool City Magistrates' Court on 23 February.

About 40 passengers were on the platform at the time of Georgia's death, which involved the 23:01 Merseyrail service to West Kirby.
