Jonathan Dixey represents the MPS at the inquest into the death of Surrey cricketer Tom Maynard

Jonathan Dixey has represented the Metropolitan Police Service at the inquest into the death of the Surrey cricketer Tom Maynard who died in June 2012.

Mr Maynard died from multiple injuries having been hit by a train. Approximately 50 minutes before his death Mr Maynard had been stopped by two MPS police officers but had fled on foot. Toxicology tests showed that Mr Maynard had consumed a large amount of alcohol and cocaine earlier that evening.

The jury at Westminster Coroner’s Court returned a verdict of accident. The Coroner, Dr Fiona Wilcox, called on Surrey County Cricket Club and the England and Wales Cricket Board to consider the introduction of hair analysis as part of the sport’s routine testing for recreational drugs.

Jonathan is regularly instructed in inquests representing the police, public bodies and families.
