[2004] EWHC 240 (QB)

The obligation to take reasonable steps to identify whether a prisoner presented a suicide risk should be informed by the particular risk profile of an individual prisoner, but the duty to take reasonable care to prevent suicide only arose where a custodian knew or ought to have known that an individual prisoner did present such a risk.
