The call comes as the UFFC (United Families Friends and Campaign) prepares for their ninth annual march from Downing Street, this Saturday, where they will again this year petition the Government for more accountability and a commitment to ensure action is taken up across all custodial setting where deaths occur.

A recent report published by the Forum for Preventing Death’s in Custody has revealed that the death rate has skyrocketed to nearly 600 in the last 12 months. The Forum has stated that they believe that some of these deaths could and should have been prevented.
