THE parents of a toddler killed by a speedboat seven years ago have flown to the Bahamas for seeking justice at the courts.

Andrea and Paul Gallagher, of Repton Road, Orpington, boarded a plane to Nassau on Tuesday morning to testify at the trial of three men charged with manslaughter through negligence.

Three-year-old Paul Gallagher was killed as he slept on a beach when an unmanned boat ploughed into him.

Speaking at Heathrow, Mr Gallagher, 43, said: "It has been a hard fight to bring the boat owners and boat driver to court and we have to put our lives on hold to do this.

"But we believe that a conviction will mean justice for our son - who had his whole life ahead of him."

The trial of boat driver James Bain, and owners Clifford Nottage and Evangeless Williamson is due to begin

next Monday.
