A man was given methadone while in jail to treat pain caused by sickle cell anaemia. He was given the same dose as a recovering drug addict with high tolerance to methadone would require. The dose was too high for someone who has not built up tolerance and it proved lethal. The jail was cleared of wrong doing but parents are still looking for answers.
