Statement from PCC Angus Macpherson - Eugeniusz Niedziolko
"Uppermost in my thoughts are the family of Eugeniusz Niedziolko - they have suffered a tragic loss and I send my sincere condolences.
"However uncomfortable the inquest evidence, we welcome the Coroner's findings and lessons have been learned.
"Police officers deal with difficult and complex situations in challenging and hard-pressed conditions daily. This should not be about blame but about learning - continuous education and training for our officers and staff is key to ensuring that vulnerable people are protected in their hour of need.
"It is very important that appropriate and relevant training is given to all frontline officers, PCSOs and Specials consistently and regularly and I will seek continued assurance from the Chief Constable that this is happening.
"We must look for a solution within the community, and with our partners, so that people with addictions and homeless issues are given the help and support they need. It is no longer good enough that there isn't an alternative way of dealing with intoxicated people other than to arrest them or take them to hospital."
