Michael Barrymore demands £2.5 million compensation for 'wrongful arrest' re Stuart Lubbock death - but Essex Police only offer £1 (Daily Mail & Daily Mirror, 21 Dec 2016)

In presenting these two media reports from yesterday, the only thing I wish to add - at the risk of repetition - is that Stuart Lubbock was never, ever, in Michael Barrymore's swimming pool that night

Entertainer Michael Barrymore wants £2.5million in damages after suing police who arrested him following the discovery of a body in his swimming pool - but senior officers say he should get just £1.




Butcher Stuart Lubbock, 31, of Harlow, Essex, was found dead after a party at Barrymore's house in Roydon, Essex, in March 2001. (Pictured: Barrymore in 2011)


Barrymore, 64, took legal action against Essex Police as a result of being held and questioned following the incident. He was never charged.  



A judge is expected to make decisions after a High Court trial in London scheduled to be staged during the summer of 2017.


Detail of what Barrymore wants and what police say he should get emerged at a preliminary court hearing in London today.



Lawyers representing Barrymore and Essex Police gave a judge an outline of rival claims at Wednesday's hearing.


The judge, Master Roger Eastman, heard that Barrymore had been arrested six years after Mr Lubbock's body was found, in June 2007.

Barrymore has never been charged with any offence as a result of his arrest.


The entertainer said the arrest had received widespread publicity and had a 'devastating' effect on his career.


Master Eastman was told that Barrymore was claiming £2.5 million damages, mainly to compensate him for loss of earnings.


Police argued that he should get a 'nominal' award of £1.


Lawyers have said a judge will be asked to decide whether there had been 'reasonable grounds' for Barrymore's arrest.


Master Eastman indicated that a more senior judge would make decisions, and said a trial would be listed for a date in the summer.


Barrymore was not at the hearing. 


The entertainer, who in recent years has lived in New Zealand, has taken legal action under his real surname, Parker. 




Speaking about Barrymore's damages bid, Mr Lubbock's father Terry Lubbock, 71, (pictutred) said: 'Nothing he does surprises me, that man has got no shame. Hopefully he'll end up with nothing.


'But, to be honest, my focus has always been on getting to the truth of what happened to Stuart, who was responsible for his death and bringing them to justice. That remains my determination.'

Bottom of Form

Stuart Lubbock’s tormented dad Terry is outraged by Michael Barrymore ’s bid to win £2.5million in compensation.


TV presenter Barrymore is suing police for arresting him on suspicion of raping and murdering Stuart in 2001.


Terry, 71, who is in poor health and lives in a care home funded with his £235 a week pension, said: “I’ve never had any money over the death of my son and Barrymore shouldn’t be getting anything.


“He hasn’t said what went on that night and therefore it is not right he gets so much money.


"I’m in a care home because I’ve had four strokes which I put down to the result of all of this.”

Details revealed in the High Court show that while Barrymore wants millions, police think he should get a “nominal” award of £1.


Stuart, 31, was found dead in the pool at Barrymore’s then home after a party at the mansion.


The injuries indicated Stuart had been sexually assaulted.


Barrymore was arrested six years later and kept in the cells for 36 hours.

But the case was dropped after three months because of insufficient evidence.


He was never charged in relation to the death. Barrymore says the arrest received
widespread publicity and ruined his TV career.


He is taking Essex police to court over what he insists was “wrongful arrest and detention”.


At the trial due to take place next summer, he is set to be cross-examined about Stuart’s death in Roydon, Essex.

Barrymore, 64, faces financial ruin if the judgment goes against him because it is likely he will be forced to pay costs estimated at more than £1million.


At the preliminary High Court hearing the judge Master Roger Eastman said the ruling “could substantially restrict damages from two-and-a-half million down to nominal damages”.


Referring to Barrymore by his birth name Michael Parker, Master Eastman confirmed the star is set to give evidence.


Barrymore’s case is supported by four other witnesses while Essex police have 17 lined up for the five-day hearing.

Master Eastman was told the former Strike it Lucky presenter is claiming damages mainly
for loss of earnings.


Barrymore was not in court. He was represented by Hugh Tomlinson QC, one of Britain’s
leading barristers.


Court papers reveal police admit that, due to a technicality, the officer who collared Barrymore should not have done so.


Documents show the detective supposed to make the arrest did not arrive in time.

Instead, a PC on surveillance duties was ordered to hold Barrymore.


Police admit this means they were in the wrong but they still argue there were reasonable grounds to suspect him because of Stuart’s injuries and the comedian’s behaviour
following the death.


Barrymore fled his home after Stuart, who was from Harlow, Essex, died but later said he had panicked and was not trying to hide. We revealed in 2015 he was suing police.

The judge will have to decide if the arrest would have been lawful if it had been carried out by the correct officer.


John Beggs QC, for Essex police, states in an amended defence filed at the High Court in October: “There was an abundance of evidence of the commission of serious criminal offences against Mr Lubbock and the claimant was the prime suspect.”




Terry, who has campaigned for years for justice for his son Stuart, said he hoped the trial might finally help to reveal what happened to the factory supervisor.

What a crazy world.

This from the BBC article:
Post-mortem tests found the 31-year-old butcher had suffered severe internal injuries indicating sexual assault, and his bloodstream contained ecstasy, cocaine and alcohol.
FACT!

He was sexually assaulted and had severe internal injuries.

But I guess no one is to blame.

The BBC report on the case:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-essex-39997790

...still insists that Stuart Lubbock's body 'was found floating in Michael Barrymore's swimming pool'.

It wasn't, as I believe I fully demonstrated in my book* on the case: "NOT AWIGHT: Getting Away With Murder" (2007).

Stuart's father and I are now close to making an application to the Senior Coroner for Essex for a second inquest - the first inquest reached an 'open' verdict despite overwhelming evidence that Stuart died from a horrendous serious sexual attack perpetrated by two or three homosexuals.

ITV report on the case today: 

ITV, 22 May, 11.10am

[EDITED TO ADD]  I spoke to Terry Lubbock tonight. Over the weekend, Terry contemplated attending the trial of Michael Barrymore vs Essex Police. A carer (he now lives in a care home in Harlow) was going to take him to the High Court but the arrangement fell through at the last minute. Terry was determined to attend, however, and hired a taxi to take him to Court 13 at the High Court (cost: £70 each way). 

He has told me that on seeing him, Barrymore was all 'pally pally' with him, as he has tried to be in the past. 'Hallo Terry how are you?' etc. etc. Terry told me: "I was having none of it though". According to Terry, Barrymore's barrister was on his feet most of the day arguing that there was no proof that Stuart Lubbock was injured at Michale Barrymore's premises. Details of the injuries were read out in court. Terry was upset. The Essex Police barrister did not have much to say today.

Essex Police admit to a technical breach of police regulations in that, because it was necessary to arrest three people simultaneously, Barrymore's arrest was effected by an officer one rank below that which is supposed to be used in cases of arrest for suspected murder.  For this technical breach, Essex Police have offered him £1 in compensation.

Barrymore is claiming £250,000 damages for 'wrongful arrest'.

The trial is due to last 5 days.

Terry said he won't be attending the rest of the trial. He says he just wanted Michael Barrymore and those supporting him to know that he is still around, determined to seek justice, and will never give up.

 ===================





Judge to decide police compensation figure for Michael Barrymore


 
Barrymore claims his arrest and detention had a devastating effect on his career (PA)

A judge is to decide the amount of compensation to be paid to entertainer Michael Barrymore by Essex Police.
The hearing, which begins at London's High Court on Monday, is a result of Barrymore being arrested and questioned after a man's body was discovered in a swimming pool at his home in Roydon.
He claims that his arrest and detention on suspicion of rape and murder, which received widespread publicity, had a devastating effect on his career and earnings.

[ NO IT WAS NOT - Tony Bennett ]

Barrymore was arrested in June 2007 - six years after the death of 31-year-old Stuart Lubbock from Harlow, Essex.
The comedian and TV presenter was never charged with any offence.
Last year, his counsel Lorna Skinner said that it had never been established that Mr Lubbock was either raped or murdered.
She told a judge that Essex Police were arguing that Barrymore should receive "nominal" damages.
It has been reported that he is seeking £2.5 million damages.


 
Stuart Lubbock (pictured) died in March 2001

One issue at the trial will be whether there were "reasonable grounds" for his arrest.
Barrymore has taken legal action under his real name of Michael Parker.
The hearing before Mr Justice Stuart-Smith is expected to last five days.

Michael Barrymore paid off two witnesses not to give evidence over pool death, court hears
 Telegraph Reporters 
25 MAY 2017 • 4:18PM
 
Michael Barrymore paid off two witnesses not to give evidence against him after the death of a man found in his swimming pool, a court heard.
The 65-year-old entertainer is suing Essex Police for £2.5 million over his arrest on suspicion of the rape and murder of Stuart Lubbock who was found dead at his mansion in 2001.
But the force, which has accepted liability on a technicality, claims that the former Strike It Lucky host should only receive nominal damages of £1.
Police had "reasonable grounds" to arrest Mr Barrymore in connection with Mr Lubbock's death, the High Court was told on Thursday.
An extract from a police intelligence report read to the hearing by a barrister representing the force alleged that: "Two people had been paid off by Michael Barrymore to not give evidence against him."
Mr Barrymore, Jonathan Kenney and Justin Merritt were all present when Mr Lubbock died at the TV star's home in Roydon, Essex.
Post-mortem tests found Mr Lubbock had suffered severe internal injuries and toxicology revealed ecstasy, cocaine and alcohol in his bloodstream.
Essex and Thurrock Coroner Caroline Beasley-Murray recorded an open verdict into the 31-year-old butcher's death at an inquest in 2002.
Mr Barrymore – along with Mr Kenney and Mr Merritt – was later held on suspicion of rape and murder in 2007. None of them were charged.
Essex Police has accepted liability and that the arrest was unlawful. But the force claims their liability was on a technicality as they sent the wrong officer to make the arrest.
The force claims officers did have "reasonable grounds" to suspect Mr Barrymore of murder and rape, and to believe the arrest was necessary for an effective investigation.
They argue he should only be entitled to a nominal damages of just £1.
Today, the High Court heard the closing submission of John Beggs QC, representing Essex Police.
He said: "There was potentially a very serious crime, the most serious of crimes in this case, namely murder, and we say it was reasonable to suspect it was preceded by another serious crime, namely rape."
He added: "You don't need to know there was a murder, you have to suspect there was a murder. If you have a dead body of a healthy person, that is a reason to suspect murder."
He told the court that there still was not explanation as to what happened Mr Lubbock.
Mr Beggs QC said: "With this claimant, he has never given a cogent explanation as how a young man was so seriously injured in a confined space with so few people present."
The Essex Police representative said police had to act when new witnesses came forward offering more information into the death.
The court was also taken through evidence from the 2002 inquest from a series of experts who said it was possible Mr Lubbock was dead before he entered the swimming pool.
Mr Beggs added: "This was not a mansion as the media have claimed. It was a moderate cottage, with narrow physical confines.
"There were very few people at the property. It was no bigger than a dinner party of nine people, not 160. If there had been 160 persons present and 140 had no idea what went on that might not be very suspicious.
"But we have eight survivors, and at no point, not one can offer a single explanation."
The court also heard shortly after Mr Lubbock's body was discovered Mr Barrymore left the property over fears the press would turn up.
However, Mr Beggs said: "After he has been found, others were seen trying to help him, giving him CPR. The claimant was seen rummaging through drawers and he is observed carrying something under his arm.
"His counsel says he was just carrying a jumper. The simple position is the police never discovered, they can't know, what he removed."
He left his own home before the police arrived at his home which Mr Beggs said was a "suspicious thing to do".
He said: "If you ask the man on the Clapham Omnibus, if someone at your party died, how many would say they would leave the scene?"
"The claimant bought himself two hours thinking time before he was questioned by police."
Mr Beggs QC said: "A more experienced detective could have lawfully arrested him there and then for leaving the scene."
The court was briefly taken to an intelligence report, which contained an anonymous tip received by the police during their investigation.
Reading from the report, Mr Begg said: "At 5am in the morning of Mr Lubbock's death, Johnathan Kenney called Mike Brown on a mobile and told him what had happened. 
"He said 'clean up the house' and the police were called after this was done."
Still reading from the intelligence report, Mr Beggs added: "Two people had been paid off by Michael Barrymore to not give evidence against him."
Mr Beggs linked the extract from the report to the Stephen Lawrence case, where investigating officers received criticism for not following up on anonymous tips which could have helped their investigation.
He also argued police were right to look into previous allegations made against Barrymore as a bad character, including one involving the alleged sexual assault of a prostitute.
Mr Beggs QC said: "This was distinctly relevant. It was the voyeuristic sexual assault involving rough sexual relations with a female being watched."
He added: "It would have been neglectful not to have regard to that."
In conclusion, Mr Beggs QC said: "We ask you to concluded there were ample grounds to constitute reasonable suspicion."
The hearing continues.

UNQUOTE

The bit about the 'phone call at 5am to Barrymore's manager is in my book.

For obvious reasons, the bit about the two witnesses being paid off wasn't (I think they were the two girls by the way).

We are now a giant step nearer the truth.

Michael Barrymore to sue Essex police for wrongful arrest

Post by willowthewisp on 26.05.17 14:42

Let us hope that"Barrymore"doesn't strike it lucky,with his compensation demands?
This just shows the laws of this country,UK,is tantamount to some sort of code that,if you can "Afford"the best legal advice,that you can obfuscate around the periphery of Justice,"Not Proved"of criminality?
Would it have been the wrong type of"Atmosphere,Prison"Mr Barrymore?
Oh you wouldn't be in control of the Prison environment would you,with all those rough criminals to contain yourself too?

The thing about Barrymore's comedic presence was that it was painful. We had nothing much going on at prime time viewing and we hoped to be entertained. The strange thing about Barrymore was that whilst watching him and hoping to be entertained he wasn't actually funny.

Being the UK telly audience of the past we laughed off his embarrassing performances because we were being introduced to some kind of new age entertainment.

Strike it Lucky was more favourable to Barrymore than his audience who struggled with his behaviour but in that televisual generation we welcomed something a bit different.

Looking back on things his behaviour was half-pissed and drug fuelled IMO. It wasn't normal but we sucked it up in the hope of being entertained - we'd survived Nana Mouskouri and Cilla Black Saturday night must see, neither of which made us feel uncomfortable but bored and deflated from hoping to be entertained.

Jimmy Saville on TOTP always made many of us feel uncomfortable - and we were only watching. We accepted it because it was being produced on television on Prime Time!

Barrymore is a fool to challenge this escapade and unless the people who manipulated his deviance will now stand up on his behalf and say he's innocent then he has no chance.

A young man, a beautiful young man died and his father can't rest until he knows the truth.

To be fair, Barrymore was a talented and hugely energetic performer. His career really blossomed when he 'came out', which went down well with the showbiz world. Never mind the humiliation his poor wife must have felt. Even the morally bankrupt entertainment industry can't forgive mysterious deaths at parties, thankfully. He should be grateful he isn't in prison, never mind suing and I hope that the truth comes out. Going to court may be a huge own goal by Michael Barrymore. RIP Stuart Lubbock.

I agree with Cmaryholms post but for the part where he was talented.   A truly vile character imo and they did attempt to get him back into tv by allowing him onto Celeb Big Brother when he apparently had a melt down and George Galloway said to Barrymore along the lines of  poor me, poor me - pour me another drink.   He had his measure.

He has done himself no favours especially sending a message to the family that he would try to help them.    UNBELIEVABLE.

I am sick and tired of these self indulgent phonies bleating and whining and expecting us all to feel sorry for them.

Law abiding citizens are being dumped on left right and centre.    Read the letters from the whistle blowing police.    Sacked and thrown on the scrap heap for trying to change the system.   Screw them and their families as long as TPTB are alright.

Time for change it really is.   We are being fleeced and lied to and the con artists and ne'er do wells are living the life and laughing at us.

I am seriously HACKED OFF this morning with the whole system and liberal clowns of this country.

Me too Plebgate, I'm positively seething this morning. Rowley saying "attempted" stabbing blew a gasket.....they didn't attempt, they fuggin' well succeeded. Stop the mealy-mouth, tell the truth and start getting real tough
