Regina (Reynolds) v Independent Police Complaints Commission

Court of Appeal

“Where a man who had been arrested for being drunk and disorderly was found, while in custody, to be in a coma and was later shown to be suffering from a serious injury which might have been caused during or before he was taken into custody, the Independent Police Complaints Commission had a power and a duty to investigate independently the cause of the injury even if that meant that it had to investigate events which occurred before the man had come into contact with the police.”
