Family of deads teen 'demand justice'

A wire barrier which killed a Chorley motorcyclist should never had been put up, an inquest has ruled.

Ryan Acaster, 17, of Brinscall, died after colliding with a cable strung between two trees on a track off New Lane, Burscough, in July 2008.

A jury at Preston Coroner's Court found that the use of the waist-high wire to keep people off the privately-owned land was 'not appropriate'.

Ryan's family has now called for the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) to look again at whether criminal charges should be pressed in connection with Ryan's death. The CPS indicated on Tuesday that it was not currently intending to prosecute anyone.

Ryan's dad Dean said: "As a family, we were disappointed with the CPS's decision. We would like to see justice done."
