Former Aurora CFO will not face murder charge

Former chief finance officer at Aurora, Richard Glanville, has been told he will not face charges relating to the death of an intruder at his home, the Daily Telegraph has reported.

Ricci Gallagher, who had been living in a nearby woodland shack, was alleged to have broken into Glanville’s farmhouse in Essex after a fire broke out at his own property.

The paper reported that Gallagher was injured as Glanville and his gardener attempted to remove him from the house on July 30.

The East Anglian Air Ambulance charity confirmed that the Duke of Cambridge was the co-pilot when Gallagher was airlifted to hospital but Gallagher subsequently died.

Glanville and another man were arrested on suspicion of attempted murder but have been told that they will not face any charges.

“Two men arrested on suspicion of the murder of a man in Little Burstead in July 2015 have now been released from their bail and will face no further action,” a spokesman for Essex Police told The Daily Telegraph.

“The 54-year-old man from Basildon and 60-year-old man from the Billericay area were due to answer bail on May 11 but have had it cancelled in advance due to insufficient evidence. An inquest will be held in due course.”

Glanville was finance director of Mosaic Fashions from 2000 until 2009. He was then appointed as chief finance officer at the newly formed Aurora Fashions. He stepped down from his role in 2013.
