Inquest into Julian Webster’s death begins


AN INQUEST into the death of a man who died outside a Manchester nightclub has begun today (May 15).

Julian Webster, 24, died on April 11, 2009, after a night out with friends at the Pitcher and Piano bar at Deansgate Locks in Manchester.

The 24-year-old returned to the bar at 4.20am to search for a lost mobile phone, but was refused entry by doormen before police were called. When officers arrived at the scene, they found him being restrained by security staff. When the police instructed the bouncers to let Julian go, he collapsed.

The inquest was told that Julian, from Edgbaston, Birmingham, was healthy and had no major medical history, reports Manchester Evening News.

Paramedics tried to revive him but he was pronounced dead at the Manchester Royal Infirmary.

Julian's mother, Sonia Webster, has fought for two-and-a-half years for answers following her son's death.

She told The Voice: “We want justice to be done and we don’t want anything rushed. We want people to be held to account.”

The inquest continues.
