In a joint statement Avon and Somerset police and the Crown Prosecutions Department  said that the CPS has authorised to charge with 7 counts of manslaughter. The charges are connected to the planning and operation of the display. The CPS also considered the culpability of Taunton Rugby Club and reached the conclusion that there is insufficient evidence for a realistic prospect of conviction."
