Inquest on Stevie Cameron to open three years after his death

AN inquest will finally open today – more than three years after a man’s death at a party in Huddersfield.

AN inquest will finally open today – more than three years after a man’s death at a party in Huddersfield.

Stevie Cameron, 22, died after a brawl erupted at a house party in Milnsbridge.

He was hit on the head in February 2009 after the violence erupted in Tintern Avenue.

Six men were later jailed for their role in the brawl that ended in tragedy.

No-one was charged in connection with Mr Cameron’s death.

In August, 2009, the Crown Prosecution Service and West Yorkshire Police said Stevie Cameron died as the result of someone else acting in self-defence.

The chief crown prosecutor for West Yorkshire, Neil Franklin, said there had been high-level talks to discuss the legal options, but the authorities have decided not to prosecute anyone for killing Mr Cameron.

Mr Cameron, who had lived in Marsh, Paddock and Lindley, was described as a popular man by friends. He had 438 friends on the social networking site Facebook.

The inquest gets under way at Bradford Coroner’s Court.
