Mum To Sue Prison After Son's Death

The mother of an inmate who committed suicide in Wandsworth prison has questioned why authorities have ignored a recommendation to re-open an investigation into her son’s death. Kathleen Wardally has confirmed this week she will sue prison authorities after a report suggested her son was moved around jails to avoid inspectors, but said those involved in moving her son should be re-investigated. Christopher Wardally, who was 25 and from Streatham, had mental health problems and hanged himself in Wandsworth prison on June 12, 2009. He had spent a fortnight at Pentonville jail, where he tried to commit suicide, before being returned to Wandsworth days after an inspection finished.
