Instructed by York City Council Laura Addy appeared at York Crown Court yesterday to prosecute Owen Danter.
On the 28th and 29th June 2018 Laura Addy represented Gary Long in the recent inquest into the tragic death of Hayley Gascoigne that was held at Hull Coroner’s Court before Professor Marks.
If Article 2 style inquests are becoming more common, is the ambit of the inquisition broadening generally? Laura Addy questions whether it is this prospect why the government attempted to limit access to legal aid for families involved in inquests. She considers the remit of the coroner’s court and the importance for grieving families.
