Statement following inquest into death of Jack Barnes
TfGM Chief Executive, Eamonn Boylan, said: “First and foremost I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to the family of Jack Barnes.
“This was a tragic and deeply upsetting incident and we have worked closely with both Greater Manchester Police (GMP) and the Coroner’s office to ensure the full facts surrounding Jack’s death were thoroughly investigated.
“There were clear policies and training in place at the time of the incident, which those involved that evening completely disregarded.
“The Coroner has been clear in his findings and given the potential for this matter to be further reviewed, it would not be appropriate to add anything more at this time.”
