Tom Gilbart represents Police in Article 2 Inquest

Tom Gilbart has represented a police force in a death in custody case heard by a jury.

The deceased died in police custody following his arrest and the jury heard evidence from a variety of witnesses including scientific, medical and expert evidence.

Having heard the evidence - and the Coroner having heard submissions - the jury did not conclude that any police actions led to the death of the deceased and found that the police followed the relevant policies and guidelines. The Coroner was persuaded that no report to prevent future deaths should be made in respect of the police.

Tom represents families; police forces; employers and other parties at inquests and is head of the 9 St John Street inquest team.
