The court heard an investigation into his death by the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) has concluded and that the Crown Prosecution Service has made no charges in relation to it.

Senior Coroner Mr D. Urpeth also confirmed a jury inquest is scheduled to begin on March 16, 2022.

The hearing was attended by Mr Terrill’s sister and brother-in-law.

His partner of 12 years, Debbie Hoyland has previously paid tribute to him.

Speaking last year, she told Yorkshire Live: “I’m still waiting for him to come back, I’ve got pictures of him all over the house and it really is like he’s gone to the police station and he’s still there.

“It’s just like he’s still in jail, he’s never come out.”

Debbie said that Matthew had been arrested following a domestic dispute between the two of them, but they were sure that he would be coming home soon enough.

The upcoming inquest will establish the medical cause of death and will also examine if any police actions or reactions caused or contributed to it, according to the coroner.
