A FIVE-YEAR investigation into the death of a man who was hit by a police car in Reading will finally conclude as the inquest is opened.

Father-of-two Aston Mclean Williams, 28, died during the early hours of August 6, 2014, on Wokingham Road after being chased by police officers following a 999 call.

The inquest, opened today at Reading Coroners Office, comes two years after two officers involved in the incident were cleared of gross misconduct following an Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) inquiry.

The officers, known only as PC N and PC P for legal reasons, faced allegations of misconduct at a hearing in 2017.

Both were cleared of the charges.

The inquest, which is being held in front of a jury, is set to last for two weeks.
