Georgina Wolfe represented the Ministry of Justice in Max Clifford inquest

Georgina Wolfe this week represented the Ministry of Justice in the inquest into the death of Max Clifford.

Mr Clifford, a celebrity publicist, died at HMP Littlehey in December 2017. He was serving an eight-year prison sentence when he was admitted to hospital following concerns for his health. He died two days later. He had been suffering from a rare, undiagnosed heart condition causing congestive heart failure.

Despite concerns raised by Mr Clifford’s family about the conditions at the prison, there was no evidence to show that any conditions had caused or contributed to Mr Clifford’s condition or death.

The inquest concluded with the Coroner finding that Mr Clifford had died from natural causes.
