Tom Leeper (Call 1991), experienced Inquest barrister at St Johns Chambers, has been advising at the inquest of Josh Clayton, a holiday island worker whose body was found on rocks near Tresco in September 2015. Tom is advising the Clayton family who have called for a new police investigation after the collapse of the inquest. Tom has said “erroneous assumptions” that Josh Clayton had not been involved in an altercation at the party, “have resulted in an inadequate investigation to date”. The pathologist Dr Russell Delaney told the inquest that there were no signs of Mr Clayton drowning and the cause of death was “unascertained”.
