Christopher Alder’s sister takes first step in legal action over burial mix-up

THE sister of Christopher Alder has started legal proceedings against the authorities involved in the body mix-up involving her brother.

Christopher’s body was discovered in the Hull Royal Infirmary mortuary in November last year, 11 years after his family believed they had laid him to rest following his death in police custody in 1998.

An exhumation of his grave in Hull’s Northern Cemetery earlier this year confirmed Grace Kamara, 77, had been buried in his place.

A criminal investigation was launched shortly after, which is still ongoing.

Now, pending the outcome of the criminal inquiry, the human rights campaign group Liberty has lodged a protective claim with Central London County Court on behalf of Janet Alder.
