Kingsley Burrell death: Three police officers charged with perjury and perverting the course of justice
Three serving West Midlands Police officers have been charged with perjury and perverting the course of justice in connection with the death of a Birmingham man who died in custody.
Kingsley Burrell died of cardiac arrest in 2011 three days after he was sectioned under the Mental Health Act.
The 29-year-old from Hockley had made an emergency call to police, claiming he’d been threatened by a gunman.
An inquest in May of last year uncovered “gross failings” by agencies involved.
