Man faces manslaughter charge after Thames speedboat date night death

Man faces manslaughter charge after Thames speedboat date night death”

Charlotte Brown, known as Charli, was pulled from the water unconscious near Wandsworth Bridge in December 2015 and later died in hospital.

He will appear at Wimbledon Magistrates' Court on October 18.

She was found in the river after a boat carrying her and her date capsized near Wandsworth Bridge.

At the time of the accident police treated Charlotte's death as non-suspicious but in March this year it was revealed that the Met was looking into the possibility of manslaughter, with detectives from the Homicide and Major Crime Command investigating.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said Shepherd, from Abergavenny, Wales, was charged by postal charge requisition on Tuesday. "If she was wearing a life jacket there is a chance she could still be here today".

Shouting was heard coming from the river at Plantation Wharf at around 11.45pm with the Marine Support Unit, alongside the National Police Air Service, the Coastguard, and the London Fire Brigade all scrambled to the scene.

Brown, aged 24, was on an online date when the incident occurred.

Brown, originally from Welling, south-east London, was described by her family as a "fun-loving" woman.

Her father Graham Brown, who works for the Ministry of Justice as a prison manager, said earlier this year that there were unanswered questions that could prevent a similar tragedy from happening others. She died later that night. Following Miss Brown's death her sister Katie said she believed she would have survived had she been wearing a buoyancy aid when she was thrown into the water.
