          Police owe duty of care to deceased following 999 call made by mother

          26 July 2018

          Rose Silvester looks at the recent High Court judgment in Sherratt v The Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police  which follows an appeal from the Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police from a first instance finding in favour of the claimant on the issue of whether a duty of care was owed by the police to the deceased.

          Mr Justice King rejected the Chief Constable's submissions that the Recorder had erred in finding assurance and reliance. He further rejected that the deceased's autonomy to choose to self-harm negated any duty to prevent such conduct.
