A brother and sister have been found guilty of manslaughter after force feeding kebab meat to a man and choking him to death as he slept on a train.  

David Noble, 34, and Nicole Cavin, 24, were found guilty of the manslaughter of 56-year-old David Clark who was found with kebab meat ‘the size of a golf ball’ in his airway. 

The married father-of-one collapsed on a train as he returned home from a football match between Lancaster FC and Farsley Celtic in March 2019. 

He was taken to hospital but died the following day.

The Nightingale court at Preston North End football club heard the siblings pushed kebab meat into the mouth of Mr Clark while he appeared to be sleeping on a train to Barrow on March 2, 2019.

The pair were found guilty on Friday following a two-week trial, a spokesman for British Transport Police (BTP) said.

Noble and Cavin, both from Cumbria, knew the victim but were returning from a separate day out when they ended up sitting together after Mr Clark boarded the train at Lancaster, the BTP spokesman said.

Mr Clark vomited and awoke after they inserted the food into his mouth but collapsed as he attempted to stand. He died the next day.

Detective chief inspector Steve May added: ‘This was an unusual and highly complex legal case and I commend the courage of those witnesses who came forward and provided statements and those who attended court to give evidence.

‘The dignity and composure of Mr Clark’s family has been exemplary throughout and I hope that they can take some comfort in the knowledge that justice has been done.’

Noble and Cavin will be sentenced at a later date.
