Richard Ferguson QC

I was very sorry to hear that Dick Ferguson died yesterday at the age of 73. His funeral will be on Friday at Gray’s Inn.

I got to know him when he represented Rosemary West, who was convicted of the Cromwell Street murders in Gloucester. But there was a great deal more to him than his careeer as a criminal defence lawyer, as I am sure the obituaries will explain.
