Philmore Mills was admitted to the Intensive care unit at Wexham Park Hospital on 21 December 2011, and moved on Christmas Eve to a respiratory ward. In the early hours of Tuesday 27 December, an incident occurred in which hospital security and then police were called. Mr Mills was handcuffed to the rear and restrained.
He then became unresponsive. He was pronounced dead shortly afterwards after a number of failed resuscitation attempts.
Rachel Gumbs, Mr Mills’ eldest daughter said: “We are determined to get justice for our father, which means getting to the truth. We will do this for the family and for the community because what happened to our father affects us all.
“We trust that all investigations will be full and fearless and that there will ultimately be transparency and accountability. The wait for answers is agonising “.
