The Fisherman's Friends

A man has been arrested over the deaths of Fisherman’s Friends singer Trevor Grills and the group’s tour manager Paul McMullen. Both were killed last year after a metal door fell on them while the band waited to perform a show in Guildford.

The 55 year old man, from Bridgenorth, Shropshire, is being questioned by Surrey Police on suspicion of manslaughter by gross negligence.

As previously reported, McMullen died on-site at Guildford’s G Live venue in February 2013, having been trapped and critically injured by the collapsed door in a loading bay at the site, which is owned by Guildford Borough Council. Meanwhile Grills was taken to St George’s Hospital with head injuries and died two days later.
