Camden Council statement – Saurav Ghai

David Padfield, assistant director of housing management said:

"We are very sorry that the collapse of a wall belonging to Camden Council resulted in the death of Saurav Ghai. We would like to express our deepest sympathy and remorse to his family, particularly at this time.

“While Camden pleaded guilty to breaching its health and safety duty it also asked the Court to consider a number of technical issues relating to the adequacy of the Council’s systems of repair and maintenance and the nature and extent of that breach. We will be giving further consideration to the ruling made by the Judge and its implications”.

“Camden Council is fully committed to ensuring the safety of residents and those who choose to visit our borough and this is reflected in everything that we do. Since this terrible accident in 2007 we have reviewed all of our procedures to ensure we are doing everything possible to keep people safe."
