Investigation into Death of Nuur Saeed Completed

The Independent Police Complaints Commission has completed its inquiry into the death of Nuur Saeed from Woolwich, SE18.

The IPCC has considered all the evidence and will not send the file to the Crown Prosecution Service. This is because there is insufficient evidence to justify referring the case to the CPS.

The report will now be sent to H M Coroner for the Inner South district of London so that the inquest can be resumed.

The Metropolitan Police Service were executing a search warrant at 48 Sandbach Place, SE18 on Tuesday 10 January when Mr Saeed went to the balcony at the rear of the property, before going over the balcony wall and landing on the concrete floor two storeys below. He was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital by the London Ambulance Service. Mr Saeed was later transferred to King’s College Hospital where he died on 24 January.

The Metropolitan Police Service referred the incident to the IPCC who decided to use its own independent investigators, led by senior investigator John Cummins.

IPCC Commissioner Mehmuda Mian Pritchard said: “I know that there has been much concern about this incident within south-east London. Our report is now complete and a file will go to the Coroner. It is the IPCC’s policy to provide documents to all parties, including the family, before the inquest is held.”
