A mental health charity has described the death of a pensioner killed by his schizophrenic grandson as tragic but incredibly rare.
Earlier today the coroner at his inquest recorded a verdict of unlawful killing.
The social care team were criticised for failing to assess William Barnard's mental state before he killed the 84-year-old at his home in Stapleford in Nottinghamshire.
This was undoubtedly a tragic incident with fatal consequences but it’s important to recognise that such cases are incredibly rare. More than half a million people live with severe mental health problems such as schizophrenia, but people with mental health problems are extremely unlikely to be dangerous."
