Paul Clark acted for the family of Luke Clarke, who was 38 years old when he was found ligatured in his cell in the Covid-19 wing of HMP Wormwood Scrubs on 7 April 2020.

He died less than 24 hours after arriving at the prison from St Bernard’s Hospital, Ealing, where he had undergone an assessment under the Mental Health Act 1983. The jury concluded that fear and confusion generated by Covid-19 and inadequate care by prison staff and a lack of liaison between the prison and hospital contributed to his death.  

Paul was instructed by INQUEST Lawyers Group member Helen Stone of Hickman and Rose Solicitors and supported by INQUEST Caseworker Caroline Finney.
