This is a unique archive of reports produced after our investigations into fatal incidents. Reports are only published here after they have been shared with the family of the deceased person and the coroner, and the inquest has taken place.

If you would like an update on a report that you cannot see on our website or for a list of reports not yet published, please email: ppocomms@ppo.gov.uk

They are the final investigation reports with names removed to protect the privacy of individuals mentioned, such as other prisoners and staff. For deaths after 1st March 2015 the name of the deceased will remain in the reports, but other names will be anonymised.

Please use the filters to limit the display to specific case types and the sort buttons to reorder by either date of death or date it went on the website. If you open a report which does not appear to match its title, please let us know straightaway.
