An inquest opens tomorrow into the death of Glen Brough, 36. Glen died of an apparent self-inflicted fatal gunshot wound, following contact with the police in Selby, Yorkshire in August 2016.

Glen, a farm manager, was a licensed firearms owner.  On 27 August 2016 police were called to Glen’s home to conduct a welfare check following reports of concern for his safety. Police secured Glen’s firearms in a locked cabinet in his home and removed the keys.

The following day Glen collected the keys from police station. He was later found in York woodlands, having apparently shot himself with one of the licenced firearms.

Glen’s family hope the inquest will address whether or not the police conducted adequate risk assessments before his keys were returned, amongst other concerns.
