Inquest verdict to be challenged

The family of Brian Douglas, who died after a scuffle with police, has won the right to challenge an inquest verdict that his death was a misadventure, after a hearing lasting just seconds in the High Court. Mr Justice Laws gave leave for a judicial review after being told that a coroner allowed improper evidence to be put before a jury who delivered the verdict on a 9-2 majority last August.
