Inquest touching the death of Ellie Butler


Dates of case
March & April 2018

Instructed by Pamela Clarke of South London Legal Partnership, Emma acted for two primary schools in this Article 2 Inquest before Dame Linda Dobbs DBE.

Ellie was only 6 years old when she was murdered by her father, less than 13 months after she had been returned to the care of her parents. The Coroner found that there had been some failings by the relevant agencies, which she addressed in a PFD report, but was satisfied that no acts or omissions by them had contributed to Ellie’s death.

The Inquest took place over 11 days in March and April 2018.
