Inquests

John is currently being led by Francesca Whitelaw on the Sean Benton Inquest after working extensively with her on the Cheryl James Inquest. Both inquests arose out of deaths at Deepcut Barracks in 1995 and have been extensively covered in the media.

He has appeared alone for both family members and police in inquests, including one arising out of a suicide while under investigation by the police. He has assisted in both Article 2 and non-Article 2 inquests involving deaths in prison custody, during police restraint and resulting from police RTAs, and on an application to the High Court to quash a previous inquest. He is particularly keen to develop his experience in inquests.
