Inquest into the death of David WarringtonPosted on 04.03.2019
Laura Nash represented the family of a man who died after the bin he was sleeping in was emptied into a waste collection lorry.
David Warrington had been living in hostels and on the streets of Manchester at the time, as he was going through a period of homelessness.
His body was discovered by firemen after the truck caught fire during the collection.
The postmortem revealed he died due to ‘crush asphyxia’.
After a week-long hearing at Manchester Coroner’s Court, the jury unanimously concluded that the death was an accident.
