David Calvert represented the Claimant prisoner at first instance and appeal in respect of an assault the Claimant sustained while at HMP Leeds

The Claimant (who was serving a sentence in respect of a sex offence) was deemed to be a vulnerable prisoner and was required to be segregated from the general population for his own safety.

While he was at Friday prayers in a room where vulnerable and non-vulnerable prisoners were allowed to mix, he was assaulted by a non-vulnerable prisoner.
