Relatives of a man who died in custody have called for the officer who dealt with him to face misconduct charges. Lloyd Butler, 39, from Birmingham, died after being arrested when his family called police because he was drunk.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) investigated his death, in 2010, but have not made their report public. Law firm Irwin Mitchell backed Mr Butler’s family, saying the IPCC report shows he was given “unacceptable” care.

Mr Butler died within hours of being put in a cell in Stechford police station, at 1215 BST on 4 August. Officers checked on him at 1515 BST and then started first aid. He was taken to hospital but declared dead. Police referred the death at Stechford police station to the IPCC, who began investigating on 5 August.

Irwin Mitchell said Mr Butler was an alcoholic with anger management problems. However, at the time of his arrest the law firm said he was not being violent but was unable to talk or walk without help.

He was found to have died from heart and liver failure, according to the solicitors.
