North of England Correspondent

An inquest has heard a man died in hospital after a “violent struggle” with six police officers, who were trying to restrain him.

Andrew Hall, 46, shouted “they’re killing me”, before he died at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary in 2016.

Jurors were told he had been arrested after allegedly slapping a nurse at the hospital and had later exchanged blows with police officers.
