Frances Andrade's husband 'hopes for change' in court system

Levine Andrade, the widower of violinist Frances Andrade, has welcomed recommendations by a coroner calling for the legal system to do more to help vulnerable people when they give evidence in court.

Frances Andrade, 48, from Guildford in Surrey, died from an overdose, one week after giving evidence at the trial of the man who sexually abused her.

At the inquest, the coroner ruled out a verdict of suicide, saying he could not be sure whether Mrs Andrade intended to kill herself.

Speaking after the hearing, her husband said he hoped future complainants would be treated better by the system.
