A jury has found an Indian restaurant owner guilty of manslaughter after a man was reported to have died after eating food prepared at the restaurant.
Paul Wilson, 38, who had a severe allergy to peanuts, died in January last year after suffering an anaphylactic reaction having eaten a takeaway from the Indian Garden restaurant in Easingwold, north Yorkshire.
The bar manager died in the bathroom of the Oak Tree pub in Helperby, near Thirsk, where he worked.
His death sparked an investigation by the Food Standards Agency into the substitution of peanuts and almonds for more expensive cumin.
In March 2015, the Crown Prosecution Service announced that the Indian Garden restaurant owner Mohammed Khalique Zaman, 52, had been charged with manslaughter by gross negligence.
The court heard how the restaurateur had debts of £300,000 and was trying to save money.
Today, Zaman was found guilty of the charge by jurors at Teesside Crown Court, according to the BBC.
