The inquiry will assess the extent to which prison, hospital and police services comply with the Human Rights Act 1998 and how recommendations from previous inquiries and reports into non-natural deaths in detention have been implemented.
The inquiry has gathered most of the evidence and we are analysing the evidence along with meeting with people from the key organisations and with family members to test our findings in preparation to publish our report in the Spring 2015.

Questions and answers:

Tragically, a number of people with mental health conditions die while being detained.
