    No prosecutions to follow crush death


    A nightclub where two students suffered fatal injuries in a crush will not face criminal charges, police have said.

    Londoners Laurene-Danielle Jackson, 19, and 22-year-old Nabila Nanfuka died following a crush at Lava and Ignite at the Wickedest Wickedest event on October 18.

    As many as 1,500 revellers nationwide attended the Northampton club for the event.

    Northamptonshire Police says that following a long investigation the case has been given to both Northampton Council and the county coroner.

    The council will decide if any safety rules have been breached, while the coroner will fix a full inquest date.

    Two students died in nightclub crush

    The nightclub’s early-morning staircase crush followed a public announcement that party-goers’ buses were leaving.

    Ms Nanfuka, who studied at Northampton University, was declared dead at Northampton General Hospital on the same day. She had suffered traumatic crush asphyxia.

    Kingston University psychology student Ms Jackson, died at a Leicester hospital almost three weeks later from traumatic asphyxia.

    Lessons must be learned

    David Mackintosh, Northampton Council’s leader, says it is essential that lessons are learned to prevent a similar tragedy from occurring in the future.

    The local authority is liaising with the county coroner over the evidence and exploring whether health and safety offences were committed.

    How to claim damages against nightclubs

    Customers may be able to claim damages over accidents sustained in nightclubs if it isn’t their fault. Your claim is dependent on the seriousness and type of injury sustained.
