AN INVESTIGATION into alleged health and safety failings at Cotswold Country Park and Beach will not be published until after an inquest into the death of a teenage girl who died there is concluded.

Kajil Devi, 15, from London, died in July last year after she drowned at the Water Park attraction .

The announcement was made in response to questioning by Water Park councillor for Cotswold District Council Juliet Layton.

CDC is responsible for health and safety at the site, which is run by holiday home developer Watermark She said parents were still keeping their children away from the facility because of publicity surrounding Miss Devi's death.

"We have all heard reports of a general perception of panic among the staff," she said. "People now want reassurance and information does not seem to be forthcoming."

Carole Topple, cabinet member for housing and communities, said CDC had undertaken a thorough investigation and the council was awaiting the outcome of the inquest before deciding whether to take legal action.

A pre-case review for the inquest will be heard on August 25.

Cllr Topple also attempted to gag members of CDC asking: "I would respectfully ask that councillors do not speak to the press regarding the incident itself as the council has not yet concluded the investigation."
