The inquest hearings for Anthony Walgate, Gabriel Kovari, Daniel Whitworth and Jack Taylor were due to begin but were adjourned by East London coroner Her Honour Judge Munro QC.

The inquest will investigate the Police’s investigation of their deaths.  The coroner was unable to guarantee the safety of the 20 to 30 individuals including jurors and court staff travelling to and from the town hall every day.  The coroner said the chances of the inquests reaching a conclusion were ‘minimal’ in the current climate, with a high likelihood that participants would need to self-isolate at some point.  Dr Anton van Dellen is instructed to represent the partner of Mr Daniel Whitworth.  There has been extensive press coverage:
