An inquest into the death of a prisoner has ruled although it was accidental, it could have been prevented.
The ruling means that in the past two years, there have been contributing factors in the deaths of three inmates at Chelmsford Prison.Oh..?
Chelmsford Coroner’s Court heard that the Mr Shaw, who had a history of drug abuse, died after smoking a morphine patch in his cell.
The jury unanimously found the death to be an accident. However, they also agreed that, with better communication and more resources, Mr Shaw’s welfare could have been better managed and his untimely death avoided.Maybe. *shrugs*
Chelmsford Coroners Court heard Mr Shaw was a drug user serving a six-year sentence for robbery. The decision from the inquest is the latest ruling that marks out a concerning trend at the prison.I'm sure Shaw's victim was really concerned about his welfare.
