- Tyne Tees
A coroner said there was a failure in care by the North East Ambulance Service for a man who died from a heart attack after a paramedic refused to administer drugs.
An inquest into the death of Grahame Giles, 61, was opened after a previous coroner was not made aware of all the facts.
These included that Brian Jewers, the paramedic in question who worked for the North East Ambulance Service (NEAS), was struck off following the incident in 2008.
