Mamta Gupta Represents Family in Inquest of Man Who Committed Suicide by Hanging

Tue, 10 Jul 2012

A doting dad was found hanging from a tree after learning his job as a Birmingham City Council dustbin wagon driver was at risk, an inquest heard.
 
Depressed Wayne Grew, of Loynells Road, Rubery, was found on parkland near Queen Elizabeth Road in Frankley, on March 4 last year.
 
Just weeks earlier the father-of-two had taken a rope to some woods before returning home, Birmingham Coroner’s Court heard.
 
But medics who knew about the incident thought Mr Grew, 37, was better off being cared for at home rather than hospital, insisting he “wasn’t acutely suicidal”.
 
His wife Lisa, 39, told how his health deteriorated after being told his job with the local authority was at threat. She said Mr Grew had been “fit and healthy” and a “lad’s lad” before he got a text message four months before his death saying there was to be “an emergency meeting over redundancies at work”.
