MP Comments on Suicide ‘Tragedy’

“The terrible tragedy of this young man’s death was undoubtedly compounded by the police reaction and newspaper coverage.  I know the new Chief Constable has said the particular circumstances of the case delayed the retrieval of the body by the police.  I am nevertheless most unhappy with that explanation and will be raising it with Mr Baggott when I meet him on Friday.”

Over and above all of that, my thoughts and deepest sympathy are with Timothy’s family and friends, because suicide leaves in its wake an enormous burden of grief and sadness.”
