Brenda Leyland inquest: Sky News reporter and director to give evidence

The TV reporter who confronted a woman believed to have sent more than 4,000 abusive texts about the parents of missing youngster Madeleine McCann is to give evidence at her inquest.

Martin Brunt, crime correspondent at Sky News, is to be called as a witness at the inquest into the death of Brenda Katheryn Gabrielle Leyland, of Burton Overy, who was found dead in a room at the Leicester Marriott Hotel in Enderby on October 4.

Mr Brunt questioned Ms Leyland, 63, at her home on Thursday October 2.

At a pre-inquest review at Leicester town hall today coroner Catherine Mason said that Mr Brunt and Jonathan Levy, director of news gathering operations at Sky News, would be called to give evidence.

She said: “I understand from my officers that of all of the witnesses to be called to give oral evidence there is nobody who will have any criminal action taken against them.”

Mrs Mason heard that the police investigation into circumstances surrounding the death of Ms Leyland had been completed.

Ms Leyland, a mother-of-two, was named on national television on October 4 as an internet troll accused of targeting Kate and Gerry McCann with vile messages on Twitter.

Her tweets included accusations the Rothley couple were involved in their daughter’s disappearance.

Posting on Twitter under the pseudonym @Sweepyface, her messages included: “I ‘hate’ cruelty, liars, those who profit from another’s tragedy, ergo my ‘hate for Kate and Gerry’ is justified.”

Another post read: “To Kate and Gerry, you will be hated by millions for the rest of your miserable, evil, conniving lives, have a nice day!”

Mrs Mason had opened an inquest into Ms Leyland’s death on October 8.

That hearing was told that the cause of her death had not yet been determined. It was not revealed at today’s hearing.

Sergeant Kevin Taylor, of Braunstone police station, was the first officer on the scene and found Ms Leyland’s body.

Giving evidence at the first hearing, he said her body had been taken to Leicester Royal Infirmary on Sunday and formally identified by one of her sons Michael Leyland.

Sgt Taylor confirmed a postmortem examination had taken place but no cause of death had been determined.

Mrs Mason asked if foul play had been involved, to which Sgt Taylor replied: “There did not appear to be. No.”

Sgt Taylor is to be called to give evidence at the full inquest.

The inquest will also hear from Ben Leyland, one of Ms Leyland’s sons.

Mrs Mason said that Ms Leyland had been in touch with her son Ben, who lives in Los Angeles, prior to her death.

The full inquest, which will not feature a jury, is to be held at Leicester town hall on March 20.


I notice they open with '4000 abusive texts' to mislead the reader before referring to tweets. Idiots.

McCann 'Twitter troll' Brenda Leyland inquest to hear from Sky News

The inquest into the death of a woman accused of "trolling" the McCanns will hear evidence from two Sky journalists.

Brenda Leyland, from Leicestershire, was found dead in a hotel days after she was confronted over tweets about the family of Madeleine McCann.

A pre-inquest review was told it will hear evidence from a toxicology expert, police and the Sky News journalists.

The coroner said no criminal action was planned against any witnesses and adjourned the hearing until March.

Mrs Leyland, from Burton Overy, was confronted in October by Martin Brunt from Sky News over her use of Twitter.

He questioned her about hate-filled messages about the McCanns on the social networking site.

The 63-year-old was found dead in a hotel several days later.

Mr Brunt, the crime correspondent, and Sky's head of newsgathering Jonathan Levy will both give evidence at her inquest.

Leicester Coroner Catherine Mason said: "I understand from my officers that, of all the witnesses who I have said that I will call to give oral evidence, there is nobody to which there is any foreseeability of any criminal action being taken."

Sky News's legal team was at the short hearing in Leicester earlier which was adjourned for the full inquest on 20 March.

The inquest will also hear written evidence from one of Mrs Leyland's sons and a pathologist.

Madeleine went missing while the Leicestershire family were on holiday in Portugal in 2007.


'Twitter troll'...........

From MCF, with kind permission from Kazlux:

Opening of Inquest into death of Brenda Leyland

Leicester Coroner’s Court

18 Dec 2014



Senior Coroner: Mrs Mason

For Sky: Counsel, Claire Dobbin (sp?)

Leicester Police: Sgt Taylor, Det Sgt Hutchins

Various press.

Sonia Poulton and ‘minder’.



Leyland family not present.



The coroner set out who will appear at the inquest.



Scope of inquest is essentially to establish who died, how, when and where. It is not about establishing fault or blame.



However, there is room to establish within the how, why Brenda died.



Although, at this stage, she did not envisage criminal proceedings, this may change on the day of the inquest.



There will be no jury, she will sit alone.



The police have completed their enquiries and all witness statements have been received.



There has been no disclosure of evidence to date to interested parties.



She does not require to hear the sons and will rely on the statement given to police by Ben Leyland.



Witnesses and evidence to be heard:



Dr West – pathologist (statement only)

Dr Smith – toxicologist (oral evidence)

Dr Zakrzewski – not Brenda’s GP, but had knowledge of her

Jonathan Levy – Sky (producer?)

Martin Brunt – Sky reporter

Ben Leyland – evidence only

Sgt Taylor – Leics Police

Det Sgt Hutchins – Leics Police



Expected duration of inquest – one day



Date – Friday 20 March



All witness statements will be disclosed to Sky’s counsel, though they must sign a disclaimer that the evidence will not be published ahead of the inquest.



The coroner placed Ben Leyland after Martin Brunt because his evidence relates to the period after Brunt approached his mother.



More info to follow. Sky are obviously seriously concerned.

Thanks once again chrissie.

And most grateful to Kazlux for a factual account of proceedings.

Unlike the scum UK media who persist with the troll label and still cannot tell the difference between texts and tweets (accidentally on purpose IMO).

But you are correct, it is an opinion from someone who was at the inquest.

Just as Brenda Leyland told Martin Brunt (off camera) "the McCanns have questions to answer"; so too does Martin Brunt have questions to answer.

I suppose Sky lawyers will see to it that Brunt's testimony will fall within the "no criminal action" area.

Rest in peace Brenda.

Am I reading something wrong, on the reports it says it does not expect any action to be taken yet your last sentence is saying the opposite.

Does anyone know if the "Dr. Zakrzewski" who is mentioned as a witness to be heard (but not Brenda's G.P.) is by any chance a Psychotherapist or Psychiatrist who might have been seeing Brenda, who obviously was under tremendous stress after being accosted by Martin Brunt?

Approximately four minutes ago Sonia Poulton tweeted: "today I have witnessed first hand how the press intend to portray Brenda and the inquest. Selective reporting of what took place."

The U.K. press are masters of "selective" reporting.

Hi margaret - it was included in Kazlux's account and Sonia's tweet.

The scumbag press, predictably, conspired to 'forget' to put it in their reports.
All sticking together as usual, like sh*t to a blanket (pardon my bluntness!)
