A shocked family, waiting two years for answers, has hit out after the Crown Prosecution Service ruled no charges will be brought against officers involved in restraining their father less than an hour before he died.
Father-of-four, Philmore Mills, from Langley, died within an hour of being handcuffed by police after an incident in December 2011, at Wexham Park Hospital, Slough, where he had been admitted to intensive care with pneumonia six days earlier.
The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) concluded on Friday last week, ‘there is insufficient evidence’ to charge either officer or any of the hospital staff with a criminal offence – ruling out a prosecution for unlawful act of manslaughter and gross negligence.
