Spare to allow for any slippage

Sophie Howe has provided a supplementary statement that will be read into evidence although the coroner has not confirmed when he will do this.

Neil Hudgell of Hudgell Solicitors represents the Sargeant family. He says: “It has been a tortuous process of delays and legal challenges for the Sargeant family to get to this point. Despite this, the family continue to hope that the inquest will give them some much needed answers about the circumstances surrounding Carl’s untimely and tragic death.”

The firm has instructed leading inquest counsel Leslie Thomas QC of Garden Court Chambers.
