‘Neglect’ contributed to Winchester prison inmate’s death

Posted on 10th April 2017

Neglect contributed to the death of a 22-year-old man at Winchester prison, an inquest jury has concluded.

Daryl Hargrave, who had a history of mental health problems, was found hanged in his cell in July 2015.

He had been on remand for six days, an inquest in the city heard.
The jury found there was a failure to provide treatment for psychosis, and a decision not to put him under constant supervision also contributed to his death.

Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust, which manages healthcare at HMP Winchester, apologised for its failings and “the distress this process has caused the family”.

Clair Hilder, a Senior Associate in the Civil Liberties department, has represented Daryl’s mother at the inquest.
