Lee Balkwell's Dad Vows To Keep Fighting For The Truth
The father of Lee Balkwell, who was found dead in a cement mixer on a farm in South Ockendon in 2002, says he still cannot get closure because of failings in the investigation.
Essex Police admitted not investigating Lee's death effectively during a High Court hearing yesterday.
Originally the force had said the incident was a "tragic accident" but an inquest in 2008 ruled Lee's death was "unlawful".
The independent Police Complaints Commission has since found there were errors in the original investigation.
Les Balkwell says he will continue to push for a new investigation by an "honest and outside force" and he has new evidence that he believes will show there was foul play.
In a statement, Essex Police said: "Essex Police has admitted liability and civil proceedings are active. It would be inappropriate to comment further at this stage."
