HMP/YOI Glen Parva failings contribute to death of another vulnerable teenager, Jury concludes

  • Posted

Inquest Specialist Gemma Vine, of Leeds-based Lester Morrill Solicitors, has supported the family of vulnerable teenager Jake Foxall, at an Inquest into his death at HMP/YOI Glen Parva, which has now reached its conclusion.

In a critical narrative, the Jury concluded that Jake Foxall was isolated during his time in HMP/YOI Glen Parva, the ACCT (a prison self-harm and suicide prevention scheme) was not properly reviewed, the Caremap used did not properly reflect Jake’s needs and the prison failed to appropriately respond to Jake’s concerns about bullying, or contact his family for additional support.

Lester Morrill has previously represented a number of families where their loved ones have died at HMP/YOI Glen Parva. Their specialist Inquest law team has a national reputation as Inquests experts. Gemma Vine was a finalist in this year’s Legal Aid Lawyers Awards and the firm has been shortlisted for their work in this field at the Yorkshire Legal Awards in the category of “Niche Law Firm of the Year”. Winners will be announced at the award ceremony next month at New Dock Hall, Leeds.
