Family witnessed Epsom Hospital chimney death fall

A mental health trust has been fined £300,000 after admitting health and safety failures that led to the death of a 20-year-old man.

Adam Withers, from Epsom in Surrey, fell to his death from a 130ft (39m) chimney while an inpatient at a unit run by Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.

His mother, Michelle Shelly, was visiting him with his sister Carla when he fell in May 2014.
