The family of Philmore Mills will be marking the first anniversary of their father’s death in Wexham Park Hospital on 27 December 2011. Philmore Mills was admitted to the intensive care unit at the hospital on 21 December 2011, and moved on Christmas Eve to a respiratory ward. In the early hours of Tuesday 27 December, an incident occurred in which hospital security and then police were called. Mr Mills was handcuffed and restrained. He then became unresponsive. He was pronounced dead shortly afterwards after failed resuscitation attempts.
The family of Habib Ullah traditionally mark his birthday by giving his children the opportunity to give in a birthday card to Thames Valley Police at High Wycombe Police Station but have decided to join the Philmore Mills family to show their support and stand with the family at the first anniversary of his death.
