Inquest Into Death Of A Cornish Artist

(Updated 5:05pm 8th December 2014)
A coroner says the care of a Cornish artist who's body was found on a Cornish beach was 'sluggish'.
Lucie Bray went missing during a day trip from Redruth's Longreach mental health unit in January.
Her body was discovered six days later at Constantine Bay.
An inquest in Truro has heard of shortcomings in her care but that what happened couldn't have been predicted.
An open verdict has been recorded.
A spokesperson from the NHS Partnership Foundation said:
"We would like to reiterate our condolences to Lucy's family and friends at this sad and difficult time.
"Doctors are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to provide medical input and support as part of a wider care team.
"In recording an open verdict the coroner said 'the arrangements in place at the time of her death were appropriate and working well. It could not have been reasonably foreseen that she would abscond or what more could have been done as she was not detainable under the mental health act'."5:05pm 8th December 2014
