Police wrongfully arrest and detain family

Oct 7 2014

Murria Solicitors represented a Mother and her 2 Sons in a matter against the West Midlands Police for claims including Wrongful Arrest and False Imprisonment.

The Mother had just dropped her daughter off at college and was driving back home, at which point she was intercepted by the Police and arrested on suspicion of armed robbery. Her anxious Sons were notified of the situation by witnesses and in their attempts to enquire as to the circumstances of the matter, they too were wrongfully arrested.

After being unlawfully detained overnight, the concerned Sons were eventually released without charge.

The Police denied liability. In October 2014, West Midlands Police paid out compensation totalling 30,100 to our clients.

This case was handled by our Mr G S Kang, Head of the Police Actions team.
