– Rachel Cerfontyne, The Plymouth Safeguarding Adults Board
It is clear that Mr Somers had mental health issues and he was very vulnerable. I am pleased the Safeguarding Adults Board has decided to set up a review and we will of course share our investigation findings with it.
Our investigation into police actions has made significant progress but we still have a lot of work to do. I have also arranged for two independent external experts in mental health and diversity issues to assist our investigation
An investigation has been launched into the behaviour of five police call handlers following the death of a man with mental health issues in Devon.
