Tower Hamlets Council could be prosecuted for corporate manslaughter after a five-year-old girl died while playing in a park.
Alexia Walenkaki was playing on a rope swing in Mile End Park when a tree trunk holding the swing fell on her.
The Met Police is compiling a report for the Crown Prosecution Service a pre-inquest review at St Pancras Coroner’s Court heard. A spokesman for the council said such a charge was “not appropriate”.
About an hour after Alexia’s accident, on 17 July, she went into cardiac arrest and died in the Royal London hospital.
