Tom Gilbart Represents Police in Article Two Inquest

Tom Gilbart represented Greater Manchester Police in an Article Two Inquest which considered the sad circumstances of a death by suicide.

The case involved extensive evidence about how the Police and other emergency services dealt with the incident.

The Coroner indicated that she was minded to find that failures by the police were possible causes of the death but – having heard submissions made on behalf of the GMP – she was persuaded not to reach this conclusion.

Mr Gilbart appears at inquests on behalf of families; police forces; care homes and other interested parties. His regulatory CV can be found here.
