The mother of a young girl who died while playing in a park in east London said the council should face corporate manslaughter charges if it is found to be responsible for her death, reports the BBC.
Five-year-old Alexia Walenkaki was killed when equipment collapsed and struck her in Mile End Park in July.
According to an investigation carried out by BBC London there had been no health and safety checks on the playground for more than 18 months prior to Alexia's death.
The mayor of Tower Hamlets, John Biggs said: 'The joint investigation by the police and the Health and Safety Executive into this tragic incident is still ongoing and we will have to wait for their report. However, the council has now made checks of equipment at all council run play facilities and there is regular maintenance and monitoring of park and play equipment.
'As mayor I have met with Vida [Alexia's mother] and offered what support we can at this terrible time. Tower Hamlets must of course always face up to our responsibility to ensure all are safe when in our care.'
