Two men cleared over ELO star's death


Two men accused of failing to follow health and safety procedures at the time of Electric Light Orchestra star Mike Edwards' death have been acquitted.

The 62-year-old cellist died in September 2010 after a 1,320-pound bale of hay rolled down a hill and fell onto his van as he was driving through Devon, England.

Farmer Brian Burden and contractor Russell Williams were accused of failing to ensure the safety of those at the scene and breaching risk assessment rules while hay-baling. They were found not guilty on Monday at Plymouth Crown Court in England. An inquest into the tragedy last year returned a verdict of accidental death.

Youre lookin good just like you may let go of  the grass,
One of these days you're gonna flatten my ****.
Don't bring me down,no no no no no no no no,
Ill tell you once more before my van is no more.
Don't bring me down.
