THE family of Merseyrail train guard Christopher McGee who was found guilty of causing the death of teenager Georgia Varley have spoken publicly for the first time since he was jailed for five years.
Georgia Varley, 16, fell under a train at James Street station in October last year.
Christopher McGee, 45, was convicted of manslaughter by gross negligence at Liverpool Crown Court.
Today his sister, Lisa Griffiths and mum, Joan McGee, said the guard was “a broken man”.
In a statement released on behalf of the whole family, Lisa, 44, said: “Firstly, we would like to express our sincere and heartfelt condolences to Georgia’s family and friends.
“We are truly sorry for their loss.
“We maintain that a catalogue of errors, from several sources, contributed significantly to the tragic events on October 22, 2011.
“Chris has been portrayed as uncaring, dishonest and unremorseful. This is both untrue and unfair.
