It is understood that Steven Rimmer, who was know to have alcohol dependency and had suffered previously with his mental health, had become progressively worse during recent months. North West Boroughs Healthcare NHS Trust are currently investigating a complaint made by the family who have concerns that he was not listened to and appropriate action or treatment was not provided. Steven sadly suffered a fatal seizure on 21 July 2020 having tried to reduce his alcohol intake himself.
