Police response to inquest verdict

An inquest into the death of a 16 month old boy has found a suicidal taxi driver deliberately drove into the family's car, killing himself as well.

Oisin Two-mey was on holiday with his family in Devon in July when the crash happened. His father Con died later in hospital. His mother Elber survived but lost the baby daughter she was carrying.

This incident had a devastating impact and led to the loss of four lives.

The effect on those families and the community was enormous as a result.

On this occasion police operated entirely in line with nationally agreed procedures and training.

This has been further evidenced in the independent IPCC report.

We hope the conclusion of this inquest will help all the families concerned gain some kind of closure on what has been a traumatic experience for all concerned.”
