Family of woman who died in care home say inquest has left them with more questions

Sarah Davies, who died aged 24 in 2013

The family of a 24-year-old woman who died in a care home bed say the inquest into her death has left them with more questions than answers.

Sarah Davies, who had autism and epilepsy, was found dead at Tarry Hill home in New Mills in November 2013.

The court heard that mistakes with her postmortem mean they will never know what took her life.

Today the inquest found there were no suspicious circumstances in Sarah's death.

"As a family we're absolutely devastated because there's been no closure. People say 'you'll get some closure' but I've gone back two years.

"I'm re-living it all over again and I've got so many other questions than I thought I ever had."

– Jennie Davies, Sarah's mother
