Inquest touching the death of Sophie Bennett


Dates of case
January & February 2019

Emma Northey, instructed by Pamela Clarke of South London Legal Partnership, acted for a local authority social services department in this Article 2 Inquest, which sought to establish how and in what circumstances Sophie came by her death.

Sophie was a vulnerable young woman with complex mental health needs, who had been happy and settled in residential care until the charity that ran the care home made significant changes to the way in which it was run.

The Inquest took place over 13 days before a jury, and heard oral evidence from more than 20 witnesses, including several by video link.
