IPPC Len Jackson: 'We can never be complacent'

A report from the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) said 86 people died during, or following, contact with police in England and Wales during the year to April 2010.

It added that the 16 killings which happened after police had been contacted compared with nine reported in the previous year.

The IPCC's Len Jackson says that although deaths have decreased over the last ten years, any increase is an issue that needs to be examined.

Mr Jackson said there is a need for alternative places of safety for vulnerable people.
