Philmore Mills death: relatives still waiting to see IPCC report

The family of a man who died in police custody while being treated in hospital say they are no closer to finding out what happened to him.

Philmore Mills, 57, was being treated at Wexham Park Hospital in Slough, Berkshire, for pneumonia when he died on 27 December 2011.

The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) is reviewing a report from the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC).

Daughter Rachel Gumbs says the family has not been allowed to see the report.

Mr Mills’s relatives claim he was restrained by hospital security officers and police as he became “erratic and irrational”. He died from a heart attack.

The father of three, from Langley, died in the early hours of 27 December after looking like making a good recovery when he was visited on Boxing Day.
