SULLY Sports and Leisure Club has been found guilty of failing health and safety laws that led to a man breaking his neck after falling from a low wall.
A jury of seven men and five women found them guilty of failing to provide adequate lighting of the patio area of the Sully Sports and Leisure Club by an unanimous verdict in under two hours
The sports and social club, owned by Barry Plastics and Leisure Limited, is now likely to face a fine during sentencing on July 14.
Robert 'Bob' Kemp died after falling from a low wall following a civil partnership party held at the South Road venue on June 30, 2012.
The defence, led by barrister Ian Dixey, who specialises in health and safety law, had argued that Mr Kemp was sitting on the wall and fallen off it.
The prosecution argued that the club had breached health and safety laws by failing to provide adequate lighting by the patio area as on the night in question the lights weren't working.
