Three G4S guards are being charged with manslaughter following the death of a man as he was being deported from the UK. Jimmy Mubenga, 46, died after being restrained by the three men on board a plane at Heathrow airport in October 2010.

On Thursday the Crown Prosecution Service said the guards, Stuart Tribelnig, 38, Terry Hughes, 53, and Colin Kaler, 51, would be charged with manslaughter.

Mubenga’s wife, Adrienne Makenda Kambana, said: “My children and I have waited a long time for this decision. We hope the CPS will now move this case forward quickly. We feel like we are another step closer to getting justice for Jimmy.”

The three guards were arrested after Mubenga’s death but in 2012 the CPS decided not to bring any charges. That decision was reviewed following an inquest into Mubenga’s death last year in which a jury returned a verdict of unlawful killing after an eight-week hearing.
