Bryan Griffiths was found not guilty of manslaughter by gross negligence

A gyrocopter pilot has been found not guilty of killing a hunt supporter who was struck by the machine's propeller.

Bryan Griffiths, 55, was acquitted of the manslaughter by gross negligence of Warwickshire Hunt member Trevor Morse at Long Marston airfield in March 2009.

Birmingham Crown Court heard Mr Morse, 48, refused to move as the craft went towards him and died instantly.

Mr Griffiths, of Wiltshire Close, Bedworth, had been monitoring the hunt and stopped at the airfield to refuel.
