Nuneaton’s George Elliot Hospital. His condition stunned her, and she noticed a “dramatic change” to his appearance. With unexplained bruises and burns across Darren’s body, neither the hospital nor police could offer reasons as to how these injuries occurred. Some seven days later, the hospital informed Darren’s family that he had died.

The death prompted campaigners and supporters to reach out to Darren’s mother and sister, who have shown thanks to the community for its outpour of love. A ‘Justice4Daz’ page was created where the immediate suspension of the officers involved in Darren’s case was called for. The Independent Police Complaints Commission continues to investigate.
