3rd October 2012

10am, West London Coroner’s Court, 25 Bagleys Lane, London SW6 2QA, before Deputy Coroner Jeremy Chipperfield

The inquest into the death of 22 year old Tony Doherty at HMP Wormwood Scrubs opens on Monday 8 October at West London Coroner’s Court.

Tony Doherty was found hanged in his cell in the segregation unit of Wormwood Scrubs prison on 3 December 2010.  He had rung his cell bell several times prior to his death but it had been ignored by the prison officer on duty.

The family hopes the inquest will answer questions concerning the events leading up to Mr Doherty’s death, and whether a swifter response to his cries for help could have saved him.

Tony Doherty’s family is being represented by ILG members Clair Hilder of Hodge Jones & Allen, and Jonathan Glasson of Matrix Chambers.
