Inquest into Manea's man death

The inquest begins today (14 Jan) into the death of a man from Manea who was given a fatal injection by an out-of-hours doctor from Germany.

70 year old David Gray suffered kidney stones and severe pain for several years.

On February 16, 2008, his partner contacted an out-of-hours medical service which sent Doctor Daniel Ubani to his home, his family lawyers have said.

Dr Ubani then injected him with 100mg dose of diamorphine, which is ten times the maximum recommended dose, a spokesperson for Anthony Collins Solicitors said.

The 66 year old doctor from Germany was working on his first shift in the UK.

Dr Ubani was charged with death by negligence at a court in Germany, given a nine month suspended prison sentence and ordered to pay 5,000 euros costs.

The inquest at Wisbech Coroner's Court is expected to finish on the 14th February.
