No criminal action will be taken against police involved in the death of a man restrained by officers in a London psychiatric hospital. The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said there was insufficient evidence for a realistic prospect of conviction.
Olaseni (Seni) Lewis, who had mental health problems, was a patient at Bethlem Royal Hospital, in Beckenham. He was restrained three times, first by hospital staff and then by police, in the 45 minutes before his collapse.
Mr Lewis, a 23-year-old IT graduate from Kingston University, never regained consciousness and died on 4 September 2010.The case has been subject to many legal moves which have culminated in the latest decision.
