The mother of student Simon Jones who was killed on his first day at work is taking her campaign for justice to Westminster.

Anne Jones will tonight join other bereaved families lobbying MPs for tougher health and safety laws.

Simon was crushed by a crane while working in the hold of a ship at Shoreham docks in April 1998.

Since then Mrs Jones, from Banbury, Oxfordshire, has fought hard to bring his employer, Euromin Ltd, to book.

The campaigners are calling for a new law of corporate killing, to make companies better accountable for workers' deaths.

Mrs Jones said: "We feel there should be legal responsibility placed upon company directors for health and safety."

In November, Euromin was fined £50,000 for health and safety breaches.

Manager Richard Martell and the firm were cleared of manslaughter.

The meeting has been organised by the TUC and Centre for Corporate Accountability.
