Anniversary of death

Yesterday was the first anniversary of Connor Sparrowhawk’s death.

The 18-year-old died at Slade House in Headington, a mental health unit, while having a bath.

A report into Mr Sparrowhawk’s death has found that the tragedy could have been prevented and the Care Quality Commission has closed the unit to new admissions.

His family want to raise the £30,000 needed for legal fees to cover the cost of lawyers at his inquest.
