Rossiter inquest enters its final day

The inquest into the death of Tipperary teenager Brian Rossiter is entering its final day today.

Cork city coroner Dr Myra Cullinane will summarise seven days of evidence for the jury this morning.

The 14-year-old was arrested for an alleged public order offence on September 10, 2002.

He was found unconscious in his cell in Clonmel Garda Station the following morning and died two days later in hospital.

A forensic pathologist said yesterday that it was not possible for him to determine whether the fatal injury had been inflicted on the 8th of September, when the teenager was assaulted, or at a later time.
