CPS 'will reflect on court's decision and carry out review'

The Crown Prosecution Service has said it will reflect on the court's decision today, and carry out a review of the case of the death of Julian Webster.

Prosecutors were ordered by judges to review their original decision not to prosecute anyone over the death of Julian Webster, who died outside a nightclub in Manchester in 2009.

Following the outcome of the judicial review at the High Court into the CPS decision not to prosecute in the case relating to the tragic death of Julian Webster, we will now reflect on the court’s decision and carry out a further review of the case.

Our sympathies remain with Julian Webster’s family and friends who have suffered such a sad loss.

– Nazir Afzal, Chief Crown Prosecutor for CPS North West
