JURY FIND POLICE RESTRAINT KILLED MIKEY POWELL - DAMNING NARRATIVE VERDICT RETURNED AT INQUEST

The jury at the inquest into the controversial death in police custody in 2003 of Mikey Powell returned a damning narrative verdict and found that the way that he was restrained resulted in his death from positional asphyxia.

The inquest opened on 4 November 2009, over six years after his death in September 2003 and was heard at Sutton Coldfield Town Hall before HM Assistant Deputy Coroner for Birmingham, Stephen Campbell.

The Powell family was represented at the inquest by INQUEST Lawyers Group members, barristers Rajiv Menon of Garden Court Chambers and Henrietta Hill of Doughty Street Chambers, instructed by Jane Deighton of Deighton Guedalla Solicitors
