Georgia Varley death: Merseyrail guard denies manslaughter
A Merseyrail guard has appeared in court charged with causing the death of a teenage girl at a Liverpool station.
Georgia Varley, 16, of Wallasey, Wirral, died when she fell between the carriage and the platform on 22 October.
Christopher McGee, 45, from Edenhurst Avenue, Wallasey, Wirral, pleaded not guilty to manslaughter by gross negligence.
He was bailed to appear at Liverpool Crown Court for trial on 5 November.
Police believe the teenager was running to catch a train home at James Street station in Liverpool when the incident happened.
About 40 passengers were on the platform at the time of Georgia's death, which involved the 23:01 Merseyrail service to West Kirby.
