No evidence North Wales Police officers caused or contributed to man’s death

An Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) investigation found no evidence North Wales Police officers may have caused or contributed to Paul Wilson’s death. 

Mr Wilson, 55, died at the Northop Services on the A55 eastbound carriageway on Tuesday 12 February at around 8am.

An inquest held on Friday 13 September found Mr Wilson died as a result of natural causes.

After being arrested in Flint, officers decided he was not fit to be detained. He was de-arrested and officers decided to take him directly to hospital themselves.

On the way, his condition deteriorated and despite efforts to administer first aid, he died at the service station.

Our investigation, which concluded in April 2019, agreed with the findings of the post-mortem examination that there was no evidence of restraint or force being used.
