Inquest finds school worker suicide “avoidable”

02 Feb 2006

A school worker who killed himself believing he was being accused of child abuse, should have been given more information when he was suspended from his job, a coroner has said.

John Hughes (coroner) said the death of support worker David Baines, 57, from near Wrexham, was unforseeable but did have the potential to be avoided.

Garden Court North Chambers’ Mark George represented the deceased’s family at the inquest, instructed by Thompsons solicitors.
