Injured cyclist froze to death after PCSOs called off search in under 10 minutes (Metro)


Following the initial call. at around 4.45pm on October 27 2018, the incident had been logged as urgent.

But according to the family’s solicitors, it took until 6.20pm for two PCSOs to be dispatched to assist a woman described as being under the influence.


An inquest into Jacqueline’s death heard that at no point did the officers leave their vehicle and the search was called off after about 10 minutes as she hadn’t been found.

It heard their search consisted of them driving slowly with their car windows down to scan the land adjacent to the main cemetery road which looped around the cemetery.

Neither were trained in search techniques and their torches were not as powerful as dedicated lighting systems that marked police vehicles are equipped with.
