R (on the application of Wiggins) v HM Assistant Coroner For Nottinghamshire

Coroner – Inquest. The claimant applied for judicial review, seeking the quashing of an inquest's conclusion that her son had taken his own life while in custody. The Divisional Court, in dismissing the application, held that the inquest had been complaint with art 2 of the European Convention on Human Rights and the defendant coroner's directions to the jury had not been wrong.
