Jones (on behalf of Sharon Mills and Nathan Jones, the parents of Mason Jones) v HM Coroner for Gwent

Coroner – Inquest. The Divisional Court, in refusing the claimant's application to reopen the defendant coroner's inquest into the death of his son, held that the fact that the Crown Prosecution Service subsequently considered that there had been a case of gross negligence manslaughter to answer did not demonstrate that the coroner had improperly concluded there had been no unlawful killing. Further, the coroner's decision could not be quashed on the basis that he might have been acting unlawfully in having reached a conclusion contrary to the evidence.
