“We always use an exceptionally smart and discreet vehicle when we are called to attend”.
In the event of a death which is sudden or unexpected the Police will attend to coordinate the removal of the body, on behalf of the coroner, to the public mortuary. The coroner will be informed and the requirement for a post mortem assessed according to Ministry of Justice guidelines.
